The Jersey Coast Anglers Association would appreciate if saltwater fishermen would participate in surveys to help determine the future of our fisheries.
Run by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council, one is a general survey while others are species specific, such as for fluke, sea bass, porgies, bluefish and others.

The oyster catch season in Delaware Bay has been extended to Nov. 30 according to the DEP.
Many shellfish beds had closures after Hurricane Irene. The season could run into early December if quotas have not been met and water temps cooperate.
At 50 degrees oysters pretty much clam up (sorry) for the winter.
Also the DEP has OK'd commercial oyster harvesting on Saturdays during this regrouping after the storm. Oyster hauls normally are only Monday-Friday.
According to DEP there are some 40,000 bushels out of a quota of 90,000 left to harvest.
