NOAA Fisheries announces that the Lobster Area 4 seasonal closure (off northern New Jersey and New York) will be from April 30 to May 31, 2016.
This has been modified from the previous Area 4 seasonal closure dates of February 1-March 31.
This modification was recommended by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, which leads the management for American lobster. This area closure shift has already been implemented by states adjacent to Area 4. The change is intended to reduce fishing effort on the Southern New England lobster stock, which is in poor condition.
