The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is reminding saltwater anglers about two up-coming recreational regulation changes.
One is the change in the Black Sea Bass season dates which was approved after the Marine Digest (http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/digmar.htm ) was printed in May. That change included the season closing earlier this month and reopening on Sunday, September 23. The season runs through October 14 and then re-opens again on November 1.
The other change this year is the Summer Flounder season which will close on Friday, September 28.
Anglers are also reminded that in addition to the Marine Digest, the “Attention Anglers” summary sheet, also available on the division’s website at http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/pdf/2012/maregsum12.pdf , is updated when regulations change. Anglers can also call the 24-hour marine fish “listen only” line at 609-292-2083 for the latest regulation updates.
