Red Grouper Bag Limit Changes to 2 in FL Gulf and Federal Waters



The red grouper recreational bag limit will change from four to two fish per person in Florida’s Gulf of Mexico state waters, excluding Monroe County, and in federal waters beginning on May 7.

This change was approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) at its November 2014 meeting.

The Commission hopes that this change will allow for a longer recreational red grouper season in federal waters, which closed early in 2014 because the recreational catch limit was exceeded in 2013. The two-fish bag limit was initially requested by Florida anglers and for-hire captains to help maximize fishing opportunities for red grouper, especially during late fall.
