MOREHEAD CITY - Anglers are advised the size limit for flounder recreationally caught in the Atlantic Ocean will increase from 14 inches to 14½ inches effective Thursday, February 8.
This size increase is necessary in order for North Carolina to stay in compliance with the Mid-Atlantic Fisheries Management Council and the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s Fishery Management Plan for Summer Flounder. Both the coastwide recreational and commercial quotas for summer flounder were lowered in 2007 in order to help end overfishing of this important stock.

The eight-fish daily harvest limit for the ocean is unchanged. In addition, the harvest limit for flounder taken in internal waters, such as sounds and rivers, remains the same - 14 inches and eight fish per day.

For more information about summer flounder, please contact Chris Batsavage, DMF - Morehead City, by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 800-682-2632 or 919-726-7021.
