MarineFisheries will increase the commercial summer flounder (fluke) possession limit to 1,000-lbs. on Sunday, December 5th.

This action will ensure that the state’s entire commercial quota is reached before year’s end while minimizing regulatory discards that may be occurring. Therefore the possession limit for commercially caught fluke will increase from 300-lbs. to 1,000-lbs. effective 0001 hours on Sunday, December 5, 2004.

The 2005 commercial fluke fishery will begin on January 1, 2005 with a 2,500-lb. daily trip limit.

(GOTTA MAKE SURE WE GET ALL WE CAN, AND GET TO THE QUOTA LIMITS!!:af: ...makes me sick)...mean while it looks like NY recs will not be doing much fluke fishing because they took too much..
