Bellone Praises New Fluke Rules

I’m thrilled that Long Island fishermen will be able to catch their fair share of fluke this season because of a change in rules approved this week by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission. Our fishermen should not have tougher limits than those imposed on other states.

Under the vote, New York, Connecticut and New Jersey fishermen will share the same rules, setting an 18-inch minimum size limit, with a daily quota of four fish and a 128-day season. New Yorkers previously were held to stricter limits. This change, which I, along with Gov. Cuomo and Sen. Chuck Schumer, have long advocated, will provide a boost to the New York fishing industry and is a welcome improvement.
