Default NJDEP SMZ Request to the MAFMC

On September 23, 2016 the Mid Atlantic Fisheries Management Council (MAFMC) published their SMZ Monitoring Team?s report on the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's request for Special Management Zone (SMZ) Designation for 13 Artificial Reef Sites in the EEZ, the report is available here:


Here is a quote from that report:


1. Based on evaluation of all relevant factors and issues as outlined in Amendment 9 to the Summer Flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass FMP, the SMZ Monitoring Team recommends that the Council designate all 13 New Jersey's artificial reefs located in the EEZ as SMZs. The SMZ designation should stipulate that no fishing vessel or person on a fishing vessel may fish in the 13 New Jersey Special Management Zones with any gear except hook and line and spear fishing (including the taking of fish by hand)."

At their October 5th meeting at the Stockton Seaview Hotel, 401 S New York Rd Galloway, NJ, the MAFMC will discuss the above report. It is scheduled for 1:00 ? 2:30 Wednesday the fifth.
