Maybe I missed it.....

But where are the details of the restrictions? Or does this mean that Keyport to Breezy point and Breezy Point to Shrewsbury Rock would now be off limits?

Don't mean to sound like an *** but do you honestly feel comfortable with finding out after the fact? We all know how transparent the government has been:rolleyes:.
What about the surf fisherman. Isn't that enough in it of itself?

?????????????????. Don't understand what effect this is going to have on the fishing around the hook . it's already difficult to catch a keeper .
So why bother:huh:. Just take up golf and move on.

The economic impact on the community would be severe. Marinas, tackle shops, boat dealers, restaurants. I would be forced to move. I would support limited commercial restrictions (draggers) but that's all.

while the intention of marine protected areas might have been good in theory--the people in charge of it now have a far wider agenda than to protect species or resources--their intent is to block access to fishing by any means necessary in some of the best and most productive areas..
believe me they know exactly what their doing
look deeper...the latest thing to come out of the presidents office was the
mpa and coastal resources plan for all waters in the usa..inland waterways and lakes included
that map shows alot of mpa designations..shrewsbury rocks, old grounds, etc..that piece of garbage legislation would give the feds the ability to shut down an area for any reason they see fit..ie. too much boating traffic, overfishing, percieived pollution, any reason at all
this crap is getting really out of hand..
NO TO MPA's

List of National System Marine Protected Areas - National Park Service Federal Sites

Site Name: Gateway National Recreation Area

Management Agency: National Park Service

Management Plan Type: Site-Specific Management Plan

MPA Category: Natural and Cultural Heritage Conservation Area


Primary Conservation Focus: Natural Heritage

Natural Heritage: MPAs or zones established and managed wholly or in part to sustain, conserve, restore, and understand the protected area’s natural biodiversity, populations, communities, habitats, and ecosystems; the ecological and physical processes upon which they depend; and, the ecological services, human uses and values they provide to this and future generations.

Examples: Natural Heritage MPAs include most national marine sanctuaries, national parks, national wildlife refuges, and many state MPAs.



Level of Protection: Zoned Multiple Use

Zoned Multiple-Use: MPAs that allow some extractive activities throughout the entire site, but that use marine zoning to allocate specific uses to compatible places or times in order to reduce user conflicts and adverse impacts.

Examples: Zoned multiple-use MPAs are increasingly common in U.S. waters, including some marine sanctuaries, national parks, national wildlife refuges, and state MPAs.



Permanence: Permanent

Permanent: MPAs or zones whose legal authorities provide some level of protection to the site in perpetuity for future generations, unless reversed by unanticipated future legislation or regulatory actions.

Examples: Permanent MPAs include most national marine sanctuaries and all national parks.



Protection Focus: Year-round

Year-Round: MPAs or zones that provide constant protection to the site throughout the year.

Examples: Year-round MPAs include all marine sanctuaries, national parks, refuges, monuments, and some fisheries sites.



Protection Focus: Ecosystem

Ecosystem: MPAs or zones whose legal authorities and management measures are intended to protect all of the components and processes of the ecosystem within its boundaries.

Examples: Ecosystem-scale MPAs include most marine sanctuaries, national parks and national monuments.



Fishing Restriction: Commercial and Recreational Fishing Restricted

Commercial Fishing Restricted : MPAs or zones place some type of restriction on commercial fishing, which might vary throughout the MPA according to different zones or areas. Recreational fishing may be unrestricted.

Example: Rotating MPAs, which are still rare in the U.S. They include some dynamic fisheries closures created for the purpose of serially recovering a suite of localized population to harvestable levels.

Recreational Fishing Restricted : MPAs or zones place some type of restriction on recreational fishing, which might vary throughout the MPA according to different zones or areas. Commercial fishing may be unrestricted.

Example: Seasonal MPAs, including some fisheries and endangered species closures around sensitive habitats.
