Blackfin tuna are currently regulated by Florida’s default recreational bag limit of 100 pounds or 2 fish per day, whichever is greater, in state waters. There are no regulations for blackfin tuna in federal waters. Future changes could mean management and regulations that are more tailored for this species.

April 8 – Destin: Destin Community Center, 101 Stahlman Ave.

 

April 16 – St. Petersburg: Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, Karen A. Steidinger Auditorium, 100 8th Ave. SE
