Atlantic snook to close in state and federal waters 
The recreational harvest of snook in Atlantic state and federal waters has a regular season closure that starts June 1.
Snook are one of the many reasons Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World. Seasonal harvest closures and anglers using proper handling methods when practicing catch-and-release help conserve Florida’s valuable snook populations and can ensure the species’ abundance for anglers today and generations to come. To learn more and see a video about catch-and-release fishing and the best way to handle a fish, visit and click on “Recreational Regulations” and then “Fish Handling Tips.”
If you practice catch-and-release fishing during the closed season, you can still contribute to data collection by submitting your catch information for this and other species through the iAngler app. Learn more on the Angler Action Foundation’s website at
