In 2012, the New Jersey Saltwater Recreational Registry Program had 265,593 individual registrants; just over 74% (196,849) were New Jersey residents. Individuals registered from all 50 U.S. states, two U.S. territories and 41 other countries. The pie chart below shows the 10 states with the greatest number of participants in the NJSRRP, after New Jersey.
Anglers are reminded that registrations expire at the end of each calendar year and must be renewed annually. For more information on the New Jersey Saltwater Recreational Registry Program and to register, visit www.SaltwaterRegistry.NJ.gov.
