According to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, waterfowl hunters should note that the area in and around the Salem Nuclear Power Plant is currently restricted to authorized personnel only and is closed to all hunting. The restriction is the result of increased security measures at the facility.
"With the opening of waterfowl season in South Jersey on Saturday, October 20, it is important that waterfowl hunters note the restriction around the Salem Nuclear Power Plant which includes a portion of the Mad Horse Creek Wildlife Management Area," said Division Director Bob McDowell. "Due to heightened security measures the area is closed to hunting until further notice."
The closed area consists of all of Artificial Island and includes an area bounded by Hope Creek on the south, Halfway Creek on the east and Alloways Creek on the north, as well as all waters of the Delaware River within 1,000 feet of Artificial Island.
