You cannot transport or possess any snapper/grouper species while in or on the waters of the EEZ in violation of Federal regulations. This includes closures, seasons, and bag limits. In summary, the number of fillets must not xceed whole fish bag limits for the EEZ. You may not possess any fish under a closure or any prohibited species, regardless of condition, whole or filleted, even if legal in Bahamian waters. Those snapper grouper species that can be legally possessed in the EEZ may be brought back as fillets.
