The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council has published the 2019 commercial and recreational fishing regulations on the Federal Regulations page of its website. The regulations will be updated throughout the year as regulatory changes are made.


Additionally, on January 1, 2019 the Council will fully transition its federal fishing regulations to the Fish Rules mobile application. To keep up with the most current regulations, fishermen using the Council’s current Gulf of Mexico Fishing Regulations mobile application must download Fish Rules and uninstall the former application.


Don’t delay, download the Fish Rules mobile application today.


Contact Emily Muehlstein at [email protected] or (813) 348-1630, ext. 238, with any questions about the application or federal fishing regulations in the Gulf of Mexico.
