|New Jersey's Commercial Fishing Ports||
|There are 5 major commercial fishing
ports on New Jersey's coastline and a number of smaller ports on Delaware,
Barnegat and Raritan Bay. With the exception of Atlantic City, each supports
a number of inshore and offshore fisheries. The Atlantic City fleet is
exclusively dedicated to the surf clam/ocean quouog fishery.
One of the benefits of New Jersey's small size is the excellent access to major transportation routes that virtually any site withinn the State offers. It's almost impossible to be more than three hours from anywhere in New Jersey. Newark Airport and Port Newark/Elizabeth are within easy, same-day reach of each of New Jersey's commercial fishing ports.
This convenient access extends beyond the State's boundaries as well. Both New York and Philadelphia are a bridge-ceossing away.
