Re: NJ Artificial Reefs in Federal Waters

Fishing at 13 Artificial Reef Sites in New Jersey is Limited to Handline, Rod and Reel, and Spear Fishing

Goes Into Effect August 8, 2018

Today, NOAA Fisheries filed the final rule to designate 13 New Jersey artificial reef sites as special management zones. This action:

Establishes year-round special management zones for 13 New Jersey artificial reefs.

Allows only handline, rod and reel, or spear fishing (including the taking of fish by hand) in these areas.

This action will be effective on August 8, 2018. Vessels must remove all pot/trap gear from these reef sites prior to this date.

Read the final rule as filed in the Federal Register, and the permit holder bulletin available on our website.

Re: NJ Artificial Reefs in Federal Waters

Sounds like good news to me. Although I don't think I've seen too many traps or pots while I've been out there.
