The National Marine Fisheries Service is taking two actions regarding the recreational Atlantic bluefin tuna (BFT) Angling category fishery:
(1) closure of the southern area trophy BFT fishery (73″ or greater) for the remainder of 2012, and
(2) adjustment of the daily retention limit that applies to the HMS Charter/Headboat category (when fishing recreationally) to: 1 school BFT (27 to <47) and 1 large school/small medium BFT (47 to <73) per vessel. The recreational daily retention limit that applies to HMS Angling category vessels remains at the default level of 1 school, large school, or small medium BFT (27 to <73) per vessel.
