Golden tilefish. Sure, they get the name because of how they look. However, it would also make sense if they earned that name off of what you could get for them, too. Plenty of people make tilefish a part of their sushi, many do so daily. If you’ve been looking to get into fishing for Golden tilefish, we can’t help you to acquire the vessel, the crew, or any of that. That said, here at the Commercial Fishing Permits Center, we can give you all of the NOAA Permit applications and more you need to be in compliance with the authorities when you go fishing for Golden tilefish.
Golden Tilefish Facts
Golden Tilefish are found in many, many places. Their population levels reflect that. For example, they’re around target population levels in the South Atlantic as well as the Mid-Atlantic, and they’re even above target population levels in the Gulf of Mexico, too. They aren’t overfished, and the market for them (as of this writing) is strong. Should you be looking for a way to make more fishing, they’re an excellent choice.
Different Rules for Golden Tilefish in Different Locations
That said, you should be aware of the different rules and regulations in regards to Golden Tilefish. They’re different depending on where you’re fishing for them. For example, there are annual catch limits in the Mid-Atlantic, Southern New England, the Gulf of Mexico, and the South Atlantic. However, in the latter, the annual catch limits are set by the type of commercial gear that you’re using (such as longline and hook and line). There are also regulations and restrictions for how deep your longlines can be used in the Gulf of Mexico, while bottom-tending mobile gear (like trawls) are actually prohibited in certain federal waters in the Mid-Atlantic and Southern New England area. As ever, if you need to know more about the rules, our staff can help.
