The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ (ADCNR) Marine Resources Division (MRD) reminds anglers that the recreational harvest of greater amberjack in federal and Alabama state waters closes November 1, 2022.

Anglers landing red snapper, greater amberjack and gray triggerfish in Alabama are required to report their catch through Alabama’s Snapper Check system. For more information about Snapper Check, visit

The recreational and commercial harvest of flounder is closed from November 1 through November 30 each year, in order to protect the spawning aggregation of flounder during this critical time of year.
