2017 Recreational Atlantic Tunas Retention Limits
Monday, January 09, 2017 @ 13:16:53 EST

 Effective January 1, 2017, the bluefin tuna (BFT) daily retention limit is the default limit of 1 school, large school, or small medium BFT (27 to <73"). This default limit applies to both HMS Angling category-permitted vessels and HMS Charter/Headboat category-permitted vessels, and is effective for all areas except the Gulf of Mexico. The recreational BFT trophy fishery (73"+) is open in all areas with a limit of 1 BFT measuring 73" or greater/vessel/year. The recreational yellowfin tuna retention limit is 3/person/day or trip. The minimum size for yellowfin and bigeye tuna is 27" curved fork length. There are no recreational limits for bigeye, skipjack, or albacore tunas.
