BILOXI, Miss. – The Mississippi Commission on Marine Resources (CMR) voted during its March 13 meeting to approve a notice of intent to change state regulations on size and possession limits of some fish and prohibit the sale of seafood by recreational fishermen.

The proposed changes include lowering the grouper limit from an aggregate of five to four fish for recreational fishermen. Additionally, the changes would lower the possession limit of gag grouper to only two fish within the four-fish grouper aggregate and limit possession of speckled hind grouper and warsaw grouper to only one fish per vessel within the four-fish aggregate.

Other changes include reducing the commercial minimum size limits for red snapper to 13 inches total length, red grouper to 18 inches total length and gag grouper to 22 inches total length.
