Andrzejczak and Land Bill Designed to Assist Black Sea Bass and Flounder Fishermen Clears Assembly Panel

In an effort to benefit commercial fishing operations, Assemblymen Bob Andrzejczak and Bruce Land have sponsored legislation permitting commercial fishing vessels to possess more than the daily trip limit of black sea bass and summer flounder under certain conditions. The bill was advanced Thursday by the Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.

“It is not right to limit the amount of black sea bass and summer flounder commercial fishing boats can possess, so long as they are fished in a sustainable way,” said Andrzejczak (D-Atlantic/Cape May/Cumberland). “As long as fishermen respect our environment and the fish they catch, we should not limit how our residents can make a living.”
