Default size limit for yellowfin tuna

I seem to remember that there was a min size for yellowfin tuna but can not find it now. I thought it was 27 inches but the regs says that applies for the ocean not the gulf. Comments ???

Make sure you have your HMS permit

Yes, 27", bag limit is 3/person. As stated you need an HMS permit from NOAA which you can get online for $20. The permit is registered to the vessel and covers everyone in board. Tight Lines.
