Press Release

Some State Waters Closed to Fishing

June 02, 2010

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has closed Gulf waters to commercial and recreational fishing activity from the east end of Dauphin Island to the Mississippi state line. The emergency regulation, signed by Conservation Commissioner Barnett Lawley on June 1, 2010, closes these Gulf waters, including Pelican Bay, west of longitude 88 degrees 4.5 minutes west, to all fishing activity.

Updates to any further fishing closures in state waters will be posted to www.outdooralabama.com as needed.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions:  Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
