The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries would like to remind anglers that the recreational greater amberjack season will reopen in Louisiana and federal waters on May 1, 2022, and remain open through May 31, 2022. The reopening of greater amberjack overlaps with the currently open gray triggerfish season (March 1 through May 31).

The recreational season closure of June 1, 2022, through July 31, 2022, will remain in effect for greater amberjack. Following the fixed closed season, the recreational season for greater amberjack will reopen on August 1, 2022, and remain open until October 31, 2022, or until the annual quota is met or projected to be met.  The recreational season for gray triggerfish will also reopen on August 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022, or until that quota is met or projected to be met.
