New fishing restrictions spawn lawsuit


A new restriction on catching nine fish species went into effect Monday.

It’s called Amendment 17B, and it sets annual catch limits on nine species of fish, including several grouper species.

It also closes an ocean area to fishing for six additional species in water deeper than 240 feet to protect the Warsaw grouper and speckled hind.

The closure extends from central North Carolina to south Florida.
