BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission has modified rules involving the commercial and recreational limits for greater amberjack harvest.

The department, in a news release Thursday, said the commercial trip limit will decrease from 2,000 pounds whole weight to 1,500 pounds whole weight.

The recreational size limit will increase from 30 to 34 inches fork length.

Earlier in 2015, the National Marine Fisheries Service promulgated rules establishing this commercial trip limit reduction and recreational size limit increase. The state says its action provides consistency with those federal regulations.
