According to Amanda Nalley, Public Information Specialist with the FWC Marine Division in Tallahassee: "We are aware of the stakeholder concern for barracuda and the issue is on our 2014-15 work plan (list of items we are considering for possible rulemaking in the coming year) but we don't know at this time when or if we will recommend regulatory changes.
What that means is, as of now, the barracuda is an "unregulated species," which means that unlimited numbers may be caught or speared and sold by anyone holding a Saltwater Products License.
