Prohibition on the Taking of Alewife and Blueback Herring from Connecticut Waters Extended for another Year
Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) today announced that the prohibition on the taking of alewives and blueback herring from most inland and marine waters in Connecticut has been extended for another year. This action was initially taken in April, 2002, and has been extended each successive year because there has been no improvement in population size during the past year. The current action by DEEP Commissioner Robert Klee extends the prohibition through March 31, 2016.
