Current Fishing Closure Information
NOAA Fisheries Service continually updates its commercial and recreational fishing closure notices.
Area boundaries could be modified daily, based on where and how fast the oil spill is moving. NOAA will provide daily updates online by 12:00 p.m. EDT. Any changes to the closed area will become effective at 6:00 p.m. EDT the same day.
