Summer flounder weekly program

Effective Monday, January 15, 2018, the summer flounder weekly program is established at 490 pounds weekly.

Parameters of the program:

  • The weekly limit, with a maximum of two landings a week, is not to be exceeded.
  • The fishing week for the fluke weekly program is Saturday to Friday.
  • A vessel may not possess more than the weekly limit in any one fishing week.

You are NOT required to submit a pre-departure notice. NYSDEC will be closely monitoring fluke landings through ACCSP and will make adjustments to the program in a timely fashion to obtain maximum benefit from available quota, and not to exceed period quota.

Please submit VTRs in the method that you normally would within 3 days of landing.

Postcards have been sent to appropriate permit holders.
