Archives for July 2017
The Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve (JC NERR) and Stockton University have partnered since 2012 to identify, map, and remove ghost pots with the help of local watermen while increasing awareness among boaters, shore visitors, and recreational and commercial crabbers. Come learn about the impact of ghost pots to our local estuaries, how you can help prevent them and how to properly rig a commer-cial style crab pot. Recreational crabbers who attend will receive a Rig It Right kit so they can properly rig their commercial style crab pot.
