Public Service Announcement – Anglers Must Join The Saltwater Angler Registry Prior To Fishing!

New Jersey does not have a saltwater fishing license; however, it mandates all anglers register before fishing marine waters. The NJ Saltwater Recreational Registry Program is free and easy to do.

The registry is an important tool that policy makers utilize for recreational fishing effort data. It is meant to solve the age-old battle about bad data which is in turn used to account for the impacts of saltwater anglers on ocean ecosystems and coastal economies.
