Gray Triggerfish Season Opens March 1

Alabama state waters will open to the harvest of gray triggerfish at 12:01 a.m., March 1, 2019, to coincide with the opening of federal waters. Anglers are reminded the bag limit is one per person with a minimum size of 15 inches fork length.

The Alabama Marine Resources Division (MRD) has provided an optional reporting tab in the Snapper Check program for the reporting of gray triggerfish. Although this is not a mandatory report as with red snapper, there is a federal quota for this species. Angler trip reporting helps the MRD collect timely data that could assist with in-season access, if allowed in the future. The Snapper Check program may be accessed through the Outdoor Alabama mobile app or online at

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through four divisions: Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries. To learn more about ADCNR, visit
