This federal registry is an outrageous invasion of privacy. Has any sportsman’s group or individual considered taking this to court? I think there would be a chance to win. I wish I’d become a lawyer.

On another note, Maryland does have a boat license that covers all passengers in the boat. It’s not terribly expensive either.

Update -

As of January 1, 2011 out of the 23 US Coastal States only New Jersey will not have instituted a Saltwater recreational fishing stamp or license.
Maine and Massachusetts have begun in 2010 and New Hampshire will institute a license in 2011.
As of January 1, 2010 all coastal States are required to comply with the federal registry.



New Jerseys' Dave Chanda's "Director's Message
http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/registrymessage09.htm
There will be no fee for anglers to register in 2010, but in 2011 anglers from states with no means to provide a directory will pay an estimated $15 to $25 annual fee to register with the federal government.
New Jersey angler registry fees to the federal government could be as much as $25 million a year — six times the amount of our annual funding for New Jersey marine fisheries management. Registry fees paid to the federal treasury would not benefit New Jersey anglers or marine resource management in New Jersey.

GOVERNOR PATRICK SIGNS SALTWATER FISHING PERMIT LAW

BOSTON – Tuesday, November 24, 2009 – Governor Deval Patrick has signed legislation creating a state saltwater fishing registry that requires saltwater anglers to purchase permits to fish in coastal waters starting in 2011, with proceeds benefitting state marine fisheries programs that improve public access and resource management.

PUBLIC Law, Chapter 559

Signed on 2010-03-29 00:00:00.0 - Second Regular Session - 124th Maine Legislature

PART 600-MAGNUSON-STEVENS ACT PROVISIONS

Subpart P--Marine Recreational Fisheries of the United States

§ 600.1410 Registry process.

(e) Fees. Effective January 1, 2011, persons registering with NMFS must pay an annual fee. The annual schedule for such fees will be published in the Federal Register. Indigenous people engaging in angling or spear fishing must register, but are not required to pay a fee.

There is no limit on the amount they will charge. It will be based on the cost of the registration divided by the number of particiipants. As there will only be two States left to participate the cost per person will be substantial. NJ needs to get its collective "head out of the sand" and put a program into effect this year.

A special lottery and potential marine fishery license plates have been suggested as funding sources for New Jersey’s registry and data collection, this money coming from an outside user group would not be as protected in the state coffers as direct licensing fees would be.

SCR93 - Proposes Constitutional amendment authorizing creation of State lottery to fund conservation programs.
3/15/2010 Introduced in the Senate, Referred to Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism & Historic Preservation Committee

ACR119 - Proposes Constitutional amendment authorizing creation of State lottery to fund conservation programs.
3/11/2010 Introduced, Referred to Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee

Both bills have been stalled in Committee.



"RFA recognizes the need for more funding for research and management programs in NJ but this shouldn’t come on the backs of recreational fishermen," said Mr. Donofrio. "The state should support other methods of funding such as a special striped bass license plate and a conservation lottery where revenue goes to the Division of Fish and Wildlife. Also, it may be time for the state to increase expenditures for an industry that contributes so much to the NJ economy."

Has anyone heard of what the fee will be for a NJ saltwater license (registry). I'm sure it's not free anymore for 2011.

That's what I heard as well, wasn't sure if anything was finalized or not. Will it be a flat rate or wil it be different for out of staters?

Pretty sure it will be flat. Your best bet is the New York out of state license at $15. That way you can fish all the adjacent states.

Sorry for all the questions but, from what I read on the ny site the license only covers the boundry portion of the adjoining state. I fish off of lbi which isn't anywhere close to that. Unless i'm missing some loop hole or something.

If you purchase a State Marine fishing License in any state (IE: NY) you are automatically registered in the Federal registry. So you may fish for migratory species in a state (NJ) that doesnt require it's own marine license.

NOAA announced that the fee for registering with the National Saltwater Angler Registry will be $15 as of January 1 2011. The change affects anglers, spear fishers and for-hire fishing vessels in Hawaii, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and U.S.V.I., although some anglers are exempt.
Fishermen in other coastal states are exempted from the federal requirement when they comply with state saltwater license or registration regulations. Twenty-two of the nation's 24 coastal states have saltwater angler registries or licenses and have been exempted from the federal requirement because they are providing registry information to the National Saltwater Angler Registry.
