There are two snook harvest seasons closing in December. The first
snook closure starts on Dec. 1 in all of Florida's Gulf of Mexico,
Everglades National Park and Monroe County coastal and inland waters.
The harvest season for snook will remain closed until March 1 in these
areas.

All other Florida waters will close to the harvest of snook beginning on
Dec. 15. This includes all Atlantic coastal and inland waters,
including Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River. The harvest season
for snook will remain closed until Feb. 1 in these areas.

The closed harvest seasons protect Florida's valuable snook populations
during the colder months, when snook are most vulnerable, and help
sustain and improve the fishery for the future.
