Blackfish is Back

Northeast - Tautog Fishery Moratorium Ended

NOAA Fisheries has announced the cancellation of the Federal moratorium on fishing for tautog in the State waters of New Jersey. NOAA Fisheries canceled the moratorium, as required by the Atlantic Coastal Fisheries Cooperative Management Act, based on the determination that New Jersey is now in compliance with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's Tautog Interstate Fishery Management Plan.

For addition information, please contact Bob Ross, NOAA Fishery Management Specialist, telephone (978) 281-9327.
