New regulations for cobia begin this week in the state’s coastal waters.

The recreational limit is one fish per person per day, with a maximum of four cobia per boat if more than four people are on board, and a minimum fork length of 36 inches.

The commercial cobia limit is two fish per person per day, with a 33-inch minimum.

 The cobia season will close on Sept. 30. Cobia fishing is not allowed in federal waters more than 3 miles offshore.
