Weakfish, Bluefish, Other Finfish Restrictions Eased

The NJDEP has eased consumption advisories on certain fish species caught in the lower Delaware River and Delaware Bay, an indication of improving ecological conditions. Key changes include removing all advisories for weakfish for both the general population and those considered to be at higher risk and an increase in the acceptable consumption limit for all finfish caught in the Delaware River south of the Delaware-Pennsylvania border to the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. High-risk individuals, which include women of child-bearing age and children, continue to be advised to eat no fish from this area. In addition, the DEP has revised its recommendations for consumption of bluefish caught in Delaware Bay.
