As the Bluefin tuna begin their migration back into our waters, it is important to keep up to date with their regulations. NOAA recently released the Bluefin Tuna retention limits that will be effective from the 11th of May until the 31st of December 2019. Take a look at the table below to see your vessels’ retention limits per trip.

|Charter Boat||1 Large School-Small Medium|
|Headboat||2 Large School-Small Medium|
|School = 27” to <47”||Large School-Small Medium = 47” to <73”|
While we will attempt to keep information up to date, please refer to NOAA for the latest changes.
