Greater amberjack season set to reopen May 1 in Gulf state waters

The greater amberjack recreational season in Gulf state waters will remain closed through April 30, and will reopen to harvest May 1 through 31 and Aug. 1 through Oct. 31.
Greater amberjack is overfished and undergoing overfishing, and the season has closed increasingly early in recent years due to federal quotas being met or exceeded. This new season structure will optimize recreational fishing opportunities in both the spring and fall while minimizing harvest during the spawning season, helping to rebuild the stock.
