The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife will hold its next public forum to discuss freshwater fisheries culture, research, management and recreational angling in New Jersey on Saturday, December 1, at the Hackettstown State Fish Hatchery in Warren County. The forum will begin at 10:00 a.m. Another forum will be held February 23 in Batsto Village in Wharton State Forest in Burlington County.
Anglers are invited to share their views and recommendations for the future of freshwater fisheries research and management in New Jersey with staff biologists. Preliminary results of the recently completed trout angler telephone survey, as well as 2012 field sampling results, will be presented. Anglers are invited to ask questions and comment on any aspect of the division’s fisheries management programs. By providing input, the public can help guide the development of all New Jersey’s freshwater programs and the regulations which govern them.
Pre-registration is not required but is appreciated, and will help ensure that all attendees can be accommodated. Individuals can pre-register by calling 908-236-2118 or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include name, address, phone number and the number of people attending.
