Did you know that salt water fishing in New Jersey requires a permit from the state of New Jersey? But, that registration is free.
The New Jersey Saltwater Recreational Registry Program is part of an improved data program to help protect long-term sustainability of recreational fishing. In 2006 the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was charged with the creation of a universal registry of all current saltwater anglers in the United States. The registry was developed to allow NOAA to quickly and easily contact current saltwater anglers in an effort to gain more accurate and timely information on recreational fisheries.
States were allowed to establish their own registry program for saltwater anglers that fished in their state, and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection established its own registry program (New Jersey Saltwater Recreational Registry Program) in order to exempt saltwater recreational anglers fishing in New Jersey’s marine and tidal waters from the federal registry and the federal registration fee that was imposed in 201. Hurray!
