Louisiana's Greater Amberjack Commercial Seasons To Close

BATON ROUGE (AP) — State wildlife and fisheries regulators say the 2016 commercial fishing season for greater amberjack in Louisiana waters will close on Sunday at 12:01 a.m.

         Following a review of current landings, the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said in a news release Tuesday that data indicates the 2016 Gulf of Mexico commercial quota of 394,740 pounds is projected to be met by that date.

         The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that federal waters will close at the same time and remain closed to commercial amberjack fishing for the remainder of 2016.
