• Final Note from Connecticut DEEP On 2012 Marine Fishing

“Last week’s report was the last full Marine report for 2012, reports will resume in the spring. Below is an important note from Marine Fisheries:


“It’s that time again! Starting December 1st, you can renew your saltwater fishing license for 2013. When you buy a license, the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection asks for your phone number and address. Why? They automatically register you in the National Saltwater Angler Registry at no cost.

"By providing contact information, NOAA’s Marine Recreational Information Program can more efficiently conduct short random telephone surveys with anglers about their fishing habits. NOAA combines what they learn from these telephone surveys with shore side interviews to generate recreational harvest estimates which allow the DEEP to make better decisions about how to manage your resources. Also, help CT anglers remain exempt from the National Saltwater Angler Registry Fee – provide complete and accurate information when you renew your fishing license!

“Also - Summer flounder (fluke) season is now closed.”
