Closure of 2018 Bluefin Tuna Fishing Season

The Department of the Environment, Heritage and Climate Change would like to inform anglers that the Bluefin tuna fishing season in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters will close at 12 noon on Monday 15th October 2018.

Anglers are reminded that any Bluefin tuna caught before the closure of the season needs to be reported at the designated landing station in the North Mole (No1 Jetty). The Department’s Environmental Protection and Research Unit will be increasing its patrols at sea over coming weeks to ensure that the closure is adhered to in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters.
