Exclamation North Jersey Marine Sanctuary Proposal

A public discussion on a proposed National Marine Sanctuary in Monmouth County waters will be held at at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16 at the Red Bank Library, 84 West Front Street in Red Bank.

An initiative to create a Sandy Hook Bay National Marine Sanctuary would add more than 12,500 acres of public-use parkland to eastern Monmouth County, potentially impacting angler access on portions of the Raritan Bay, as well as Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers.

Default Re: North Jersey Marine Sanctuary Proposal

This really is a cause for concern. On the one hand, if access were improved, that is actual angler access, to the navesink it would be welcome, but a marine sanctuary where none is in place today makes me believe that angling will be restricted, say for shellfish and crabbing, beyond just hook and line.
