Grouper from the Tortugas - legal?
I keep seeing reports from the Dry Tortugas where grouper, mostly red and some blacks are being taken and kept. Currently, shallow water grouper are closed in the Atlantic January - April in all waters, and in the Gulf February - March in water deeper than 120'. Judging by the size and type of the fish, and the color of the water in the photos, I would bet they are being taken beyond 120' depth. Is there an area near the Dry Tortugas where it's currently legal to take Red and Black Grouper?
