Blueline tilefish closes for recreational harvest in Atlantic state waters (including all state waters of Monroe County) on July 26, with the last day of harvest being July 25.
Earlier this year, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Commissioners approved a temporary modification to reduce the recreational season in state waters to be consistent with recent changes in Atlantic federal waters. These regulations are intended to help prevent overfishing from occurring.
The Atlantic state waters recreational bag limit for blueline tilefish is three fish within the three-fish aggregate bag limit for grouper and tilefish.
