Arrow Gray triggerfish size limit to increase in Atlantic state waters on July 9, 2015

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

For immediate release: July 2, 2015

Media contact: Bekah Nelson, 850-265-3676

Gray triggerfish size limit to increase in Atlantic state waters effective July 9

An increase of the minimum size limit of gray triggerfish in Atlantic state waters will take effect beginning July 9.

At its April 15 meeting in Tallahassee, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved increasing the minimum size limit of gray triggerfish in Atlantic state waters from 12 inches fork length to 14 inches fork length.

This change makes Atlantic state water regulations consistent with new federal regulations. The change also makes the minimum size limit for gray triggerfish in Atlantic state waters (from shore to 3 nautical miles) the same as it is in Gulf state waters (from shore to 9 nautical miles). This minimum size limit applies to both recreational and commercial harvest.

For more information, visit MyFWC.com/About and click on “The Commission” and “Commission Meetings.” To learn more about gray triggerfish, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on “Saltwater,” “Recreational Regulations” and “Triggerfish.”

But that's an ocean tally not a grey trigger.

Just saw this thread here, and just posted another question on triggerfish, not certain of the name but I have seen some pretty colorful triggers wondering if those are also legal to shoot?
