Local, state and federal agencies strictly enforce lobster harvest and boating safety regulations in the Florida Keys during the lobster sport mini season the last Wednesday and Thursday in July, and regular season that begins Aug. 6. Some lobster harvest rules in the Keys are different than the remainder of Florida. Chief among differences is a daily bag limit, during mini-season, limiting divers to six legal-size lobsters per diver, per day. Statewide, lobster carapaces must measure more than three inches.
