July 21 through Dec. 31, 2023
At its July meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) issued an executive
order to close recreational harvest of red grouper in state waters of the Gulf of Mexico, excluding state
waters off Monroe County. The 2023 recreational season for red grouper in Gulf state waters will close
on July 21 and remain closed through the end of the year, consistent with the closure in Gulf federal
Consistent state and federal recreational seasons for red grouper will help prevent quota overages
and ensure future harvest opportunities.
