The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission recently approved a Notice of Intent to establish recreational and commercial regulations for the harvest of tripletail, according to a press release.

The proposed regulations would establish a recreational bag limit of five fish per day along with a minimum total length of 18 inches.

Proposed commercial regulations would include the 18-inch requirement and establish a 100-pound trip limit, with no more than one trip per day. 

Interested persons may submit comments relative to the proposed rule to:  Jason Adriance, Fisheries Division, Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Box 98000, Baton Rouge, LA  70898 9000, or via e-mail to  jadriance@wlf.la.gov prior to Thursday, September 5, 2013.
