On June 1, the following saltwater fisheries opened or closed to harvest:

- Gag grouper opened for recreational harvest in most state Gulf of Mexico waters and all federal Gulf waters (does not include Franklin, Wakulla, Taylor and Jefferson counties - which opened on April 1 - nor Monroe County, which follows the Atlantic state season and opened on May 1).

If you plan to fish for gag grouper in Gulf state or federal waters (excluding Monroe County) from a private recreational vessel, you must sign up as a Gulf Reef Fish Angler (annual renewal is required) before July 1 or as a State Reef Fish Angler after July 1.
