The fishing community are invited to attend a press conference on Friday, January 27, at 10 a.m., at Fishermen's Supply Co. in Point Pleasant Beach. NJDEP Commissioner Bob Martin and U.S. Congressman Frank Pallone will announce their opposition to proposed federal cuts for summer flounder. Those interested but unable to attend can view the event via a Facebook Live broadcast on the DFW Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NJFishandWildlife/
The press conference is in response to votes last month by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission and the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council that could reduce New Jersey's recreational harvest limit for summer flounder by as much as 50 percent, which would have dramatic, adverse impacts to the state's fishing industry and shore tourism.
The GPS address for Fishermen's Supply Co. is 69 Channel Drive, Point Pleasant Beach. Parking on Channel Drive is encouraged as the event will take part in the parking lot.
