I copied this off a Delaware site. It appears that the state legislature is (so far) on board to keep the comms off the artificial reef sites in Del waters. Hopefully, they will follow through. It would be nice if the feds would also act on the off shore reefs. (especially #11)



Here's how it reads on the Delaware bill site. I get the impression that the government will leave it up to dnrec to set the final regulations.


This Act grants the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control authority to restrict, or define by regulation, the type of fishing activities permitted within the geographic boundaries of the artificial reef sites in the Delaware Bay and ocean waters under Delaware jurisdiction. This regulatory authority is necessary to prevent certain types of commercial fishing from interfering with the ability and opportunity for sport fishing. Delaware’s artificial reef sites were built, and are maintained, partially or wholly through funds made available under the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Act to benefit sport fisheries and sport fishing.

neither us nor the comms can fish for seabass right now.... we have a much bigger problem then recs and comms on our hands.........
"This letter is to inform you that NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is projecting that the 2009 recreational harvest limit established for black sea bass has been exceeded. Therefore, effective on Monday, October 5, 2009, NMFS is prohibiting the possession or retention of black sea bass in the Federal waters of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) from 3 to 200 nautical miles offshore, north of Cape Hatteras, NC, by persons other than those that possess a Federal moratorium or dealer permit applicable to commercial fishing operations. This action closes the recreational fishery for black sea bass in the EEZ for 180 days. "
