Beware of the Fish & Game Warden

For recreational fisherman and commercial fisherman, the NJDEP Div of Fish & Wildlife warden can board your vessel to check if regulations are being met–whenever they show up. This photo shows two warden checking a large commercial fishing vessel upon its return from sea.

Stop Wildlife Crime

Feb. 2011  It seems that the poaching of Striped Bass with gill nets is a problem that is all too familiar to in Maryland. Less than a year ago NRP officers made news by finding and seizing approximately 16,500 yards of illegally anchored gill and 3,200 lbs. of rockfish. Officers also charged a number of fishermen with various other violations.

If we all follow the rules, our wildlife populations will have time to recover.
