It’s the lazy days of summer, time to relax and get out to do some fishing! Senator Owen Johnson has released an informational brochure “2011 Fishing Facts for New York Marine Recreational Fishermen”. This brochure provides a quick reference guide for size limits on fish, the season, and catch limits, as well as tips for catch and release fishing. This guide can be downloaded from the Friends of the Bay website at www.friendsofthebay.org.
The Department of Environmental Conservation has also announced that all saltwater anglers are required to register in the state’s new no-fee saltwater registry. The DEC developed the registry in compliance with recent legislation that suspended the fee associated with the state’s marine recreational fishing license for two years. The no-fee registration system will be used by the National Marine Fisheries Service and interstate fisheries regulators to set harvest quotas for marine species.
