At its July meeting in Stuart, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved a draft proposal to create a recreational limit for blackfin tuna of two fish per person or 10 fish per vessel, whichever is greater, and to extend this proposed regulation into federal waters. The proposal is expected to come before the Commission for a final public hearing in October.

At its July meeting in Stuart, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved changes to how shortfin mako are managed in state waters.
Effective Jan. 1, 2020, the minimum size limit for recreational harvest will increase from 54 to 83 inches fork length.
This size increase is required by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission to provide consistency with recent federal changes. Shortfin mako is overfished and undergoing overfishing, and these measures are a part of ongoing international efforts to help rebuild the resource for a sustainable fishery in the future. Commercial harvest is prohibited in state waters due to recent changes to federal rules.

Their end game is obvious at this point. Thing is, people have become accustomed to accepting the outright crazy as a norm instead of fixing the real problems.

Just look at the left.

They took down their original 2020 Vision to make recreational completely catch and release. But they are on full track to make it happen soon!

So if you're by yourself, in your boat, you can have 10 blackfin, but if you're on a pier or land based water structure, you can only have 2 per person?
