The 2023 recreational harvest of golden tilefish in federal waters of the South Atlantic will close at 12:01 a.m., (local time), on July 17, 2023.
The 2023 golden tilefish recreational catch limit is 2,316 fish. Reports indicate that recreational landings have reached the 2023 recreational catch limit. The accountability measure requires recreational harvest to close when the recreational catch limit has been reached. This closure is necessary to protect the golden tilefish population.
