There was also a letter to Sullivan from members of the N. J. congressional delegation sent to NOAA and the National Fish and Wildlife Service asking those agencies to explain their votes earlier this month in favor of new regionalization measures for the 2014 fluke fishing season.

    SL2-14-14RISTORI FOR FRIDAYA LONGER SEASON IN STORE FOR WINTER FLOUNDERby Al RistoriThough the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) dealt a blow to New Jersey on fluke by including us in a region with New York and Connecticut that results in an 18-inch minimum with four fish during a 128-day season, there was some good news from the recent ASMFC meeting as year-round recreational fishing was permitted for winter flounder. There will also once again be an opportunity to fish for flounder in the fall, which we gave up when management started in exchange for eliminating commercial fishing for winter flounder in the ocean -- though NMFS Regional Director John Bullard has since ignored that by allowing a commercial by-catch.
