The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) and the New Jersey Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife will host a public hearing regarding the ASMFC's recently released Public Hearing Draft of Addendum II to the Fishery Management Plan for Tautog. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 19, at 6:30, at the Ocean County Administration Building, 101 Hooper Avenue, Room 119 in Toms River.
