PUBLIC MEETINGS ON STRIPED BASS REGULATIONS
JUNE 1, 3 AND 7

(04/58) TRENTON - The Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) Division of Fish and Wildlife will hold three public meetings on this year's proposed regulations for striped bass recreationally caught in state waters. The meetings are scheduled for June 1 in Bergen County, June 3 in Ocean County and June 7 in Cape May County.

The DEP, in cooperation with the New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council, developed several recreational-fishery options that would allow New Jersey to maintain compliance with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's Interstate Fisheries Management Plan for Striped Bass. The options will be discussed so the state's recreational striped-bass fishermen and the public can help determine which option best balances anglers' needs and preferences with conservation of the fishery.

Meeting times and locations are:

June 1, 7-10 p.m.
Hackensack Meadowlands Environmental Commission Auditorium
2 Dekorte Park Plaza
Lyndhurst, Bergen County

June 3, 7:30-10 p.m.
Brick Township Municipal Building
401 Chambers Bridge Road
Brick Township, Ocean County

June 7, 7-10 p.m.
Avalon Borough Council Chambers
3100 Dune Drive
Avalon, Cape May County
