.Maryland is implementing a statewide moratorium on

harvesting river herring.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources announced

the fishing ban Friday 13 JAN but said it has been in effect

since Dec. 26.

A multi-state commission manages Atlantic Coast river

herring stock.

Each state from Maine to Florida was

required to institute a fishing stop for herring by

Jan. 1, unless a state plan was developed to

demonstrate sustainability of the fish population.

Herring numbers have been declining for 40 years.

Maryland authorities say anyone possessing river

herring as bait will need to have a receipt showing

where it was purchased.
