Volunteers Needed for Fish Study

Hackensack River
If you love fishing, and fish the Hackensack River, here's another reason to cast your line out. A Montclair State University student seeks volunteers to assist with collecting fish from the Hackensack River. The fish are being collected as part of a study looking at the transfer of contaminants throughout the aquatic food web. The study area includes the towns of North Arlington, Secaucus, and Lyndhurst with the aim of obtaining 10 fish from each of the species listed below:
  • Bluegill
  • Pumpkinseed
  • Carp
  • Catfish
  • Largemouth bass
  • Chain pickerel

Volunteers are required to have a valid NJ Fishing License and must abide by all fishing regulations for the specific species and waterways.
