New Jersey Tautog Fishery to Remain Open

NOAA Fisheries Service has withdrawn its action to close the New Jersey tautog fishery which was scheduled to take effect on April 1.  The agency has been notified by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, which manages the tautog resource, that the state is now in compliance with the Interstate Fishery Management Plan, and NOAA has concurred with this finding.
