    If you take lobster off NJ you must now register...

    Thanks for the info NJDiver. Sorry, but NJ is such a nanny state... The family hunter registered, printed off and laminated the card so it can be carried and produced if required.

    Dear Mr. _____:

    If taking lobsters by hand you need to register. If taking benthic mollusks (i.e. clams, mussels, oysters), with the exception of conchs, by hand you need a license, not a registration. If taking lobsters with a recreational lobster license ($100) which allows the use of 10 lobster pots, you do not need to register.

    A recreational diver would not be required to have the registration certificate on them when under water recreationally fishing. However, the registration certificate should be kept nearby, such as on the boat or in the car, so it can be made available when asked by a conservation, or other enforcement, officer.

    Hopefully this answer was helpful.

    It is being reported by both print and radio media that those taking shellfish and lobster do not need to register. There are also contradicting statements in your frequently asked questions section number 31. The sport divers of this state and those visiting from elsewhere need to have a clearer statement from the Marine Fisheries Administration as to whether or not they need to register when taking shellfish or crustaceans by hand. There is also a contradiction in the Administrative Order as to availability of the registry certificate on demand of an enforcement officer. One section states that it must be kept “on his or her person” and another section states “shall make available”. This will create a hardship for those diving from shore unless given leeway by the enforcement officer on scene to produce the certificate from a vehicle or nearby residence. Please contact me to clear up these discrepancies. Thank you.

    So as a non-resident, I can take lobsters while diving and don't have to pay anything, just register which I already did?

    From what I can tell, there are two different N.J. cards. A registration card for fishing (rod, hand, spear...) that is free. And a license for taking shellfish, clams, mussels... which costs. For me, a non-resident it was $20. I did the free registration, too. It doesn't say what category ocean scallops fall into.
