The New Jersey Fish and Game Council has schedule a public hearing for the proposed 2000 Fish Code at 7:30 p.m., August 10, at the Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife's Assunpink Conservation Center on Eldridge Road in Robbinsville, Monmouth County.

"All New Jersey anglers are encouraged to attend and actively take part in shaping the future of their sport," said Division Director Bob McDowell.

The Fish Code describes the legal angling methods, season dates, size and catch limits, and trout stocking locations for freshwater fishing in the Garden State. The regulations are reviewed annually, updated, appropriately revised based on biological findings and changing situations, and then proposed for the next year's code.

Anglers should note the following proposed changes.

To obtain a copy of the proposed 2000 Fish Code, send a self-addressed, stamped (two stamps) 11" x 14" envelope to the Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife, P.O. Box 400, Trenton, NJ 08625-0400, Attention: Fish Code. Written comments regarding the code should be submitted by August 18 to Director Bob McDowell at the same address.
