Any one fishing in NJ saltwater will need a saltwater registry
While recreational saltwater fishing, this registration certificate MUST be in your possession, and be available to be produced to law enforcement officers upon their request. http://www.nj.gov/dep/saltwaterregistry/
What if I do not have a Social Security Number?
If you do not have a Social Security Number for this registration purpose you will be considered a non-US resident. You will then have the ability to input your passport number and country of origin.
What if I do not have a passport. You will then have the ability to use any white bucket, keep whatever you catch, there is only a handful of enforcement officers
