New regulations reduces charters to one Bluefin Tuna per vessel. This is really gonna hurt the entire fishing industry and trickle down to many others including marinas, fuel stations, lodging, sandwich shops, etc, etc

the first one is 2016 the second is 2017 pretty sure it's for the year-or until they change it as they always do by closing it down.

2016

Effective April 23, 2016, through December 31, 2016, the bluefin tuna (BFT) daily retention limits are the following. For HMS Angling-permitted vessels: 2 school BFT (27 to <47") + 1 large school/small medium BFT (47 to <73"); for HMS Charter/Headboat-permitted vessels: 3 school BFT + 1 large school/small medium BFT. These limits are effective for all areas except the Gulf of Mexico. The recreational BFT trophy fishery (73"+) is currently open north of 3918' (off Great Egg Inlet, NJ) (NOTE: CLOSES AUGUST 6, 2016 at 11:30 PM); as well as in the Gulf of Mexico with a limit of 1 BFT measuring 73" or greater/vessel/year. For further information, see notices in library (at left). 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

2017
