NOAA Fisheries outreach booth

Members of the Marine Recreational Information Program team will join port agents from NOAA Fisheries’ Greater Atlantic Region at the New England Saltwater Fishing Show from March 9-11, 2018 and the Saltwater Fishing Expo from March 16-18, 2018. Please stop by our booth to ask questions and say hello.

Changes are happening in the recreational fishing industry. They include new electronic reporting requirements for the for-hire fleet as well as revised saltwater recreational fishing survey methods. Our staff can help you understand these changes and how they may, or may not, affect you.

Staff can also answer many types of questions, including those regarding recreational fisheries science, regulation, catch estimation, protected areas, and ethical angling practices.
