NJOA - ACTION ALERT

NOAA Fisheries and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Fishery Management Council are considering cutting 2017 summer flounder recreational quota by up to 40 percent. Unfortunately, this decision is being based on an outdated adn innacurrate benchmark stock assessment from 2013.
If this reduction goes through, it would be devastating for one of New Jersey's most popular recreational fisheries. Recreational fishing for summer flounder employs over 10,000 people and generates over $1 billion in revenue coastwide. A 40 percent reduction would crush local tackle shops, party boats, charter boats, recreational anglers and other facets of local economy that rely on them.

Here is the document that Jim refers to.

My understanding of where NJ is in the process is a bit different.
Hasn't NJ decided to go out of compliance to continue with last year's regs and force NOAA's hand?

I really hope you're right, that NJ will challenge NOAA, But we'll have to wait and see.

I may be completely off base here. But that was my understanding based on what I have read elsewhere.

No matter what the best we can expect is to repeat last years regs which weren't the best to begin with.
18" Fluke are hard to come by until August from my experience.
