Here is the document we have all been waiting for. The third page, item one is what we need to emphasize at the Mid Atlantic Fisheries Management Council meeting on the fifth in Galloway, NJ.
1. Based on evaluation of all relevant factors and issues as outlined in Amendment 9 to the Summer Flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass FMP, the SMZ Monitoring Team recommends that the Council designate all 13 New Jersey's artificial reefs located in the EEZ as SMZs. The SMZ designation should stipulate that no fishing vessel or person on a fishing vessel may fish in the 13 New Jersey Special Management Zones with any gear except hook and line and spear fishing (including the taking of fish by hand).
