People often ask if one is allowed to keep a sailfish:

Even if you don't want to keep a sail, you should buy a permit each year, in case you land a yellowfin tuna, swordfish or other federally regulated species. Size limit for sailfish is 63 inches, measured from lower jaw to the fork of the tail.

Florida daily bag limit for all billfish is one per person

Top places where to catch Sailfish beside Thailand is the FLORIDA KEYS!
