Recreational Saltwater Angler Survey

ATTENTION SALTWATER ANGLERS!

The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife is implementing an angler survey to collect information on certain recreationally important marine finfish species. Current data collection efforts for recreational fisheries are hindered by sampling only a small portion of the fishing public and from collecting only minimal data on discarded fish. Information collected through this voluntary survey will provide data which may support alternative management stratagies that increase fishing opportunities for the public.

The focus of this voluntary survey is catch and effort from fishing trips in marine and estuarine waters of the state and surrounding areas. For catch information, we are interested in collecting information on the number and size of both kept and discarded fish.

Thank you for your assistance with this project. We value your input.

Please DO NOT submit Striped Bass Bonus Program information using this survey. Please use the Online Striped Bass Logbook only.
