Boating – New Jersey

The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife is reminding saltwater anglers that the federal government’s National Saltwater Angler Registry Program requires most New Jersey saltwater anglers to register before fishing in 2010.

You must register if you fish for or catch striped bass, shad, river herring in state tidal waters; or fish in Federal waters (more than three miles from shore).

You do not have to register if you are under 16 years of age, only fish on federally licensed party or charter boats or hold a Highly Migratory Species Angling Permit.

Online and telephone registration will begin Jan. 1, 2010. Register online at http://www.countmyfish.noaa.gov or call (888) 674-7411.

The registration is free in 2010, but will most likely cost you in the years following.
