Would be very very interesting, Meadowlands are in my backyard as well.  I will be keeping my ear to the ground on that one but have heard nothing yet.  I am sure they will have some special regulations in place is they do.

Has the water in that area suddenly become clean?   

I've heard nothing on this.

OMG, the Newark Bay?  Filthy!  When I lived in NJ I used to work down there...and I could not believe how dirty the water was.  Now the Chesapeake is trying to catch up with them Sad

If this is true, then maybe they have cleaned it up.  But I'd be wary and very excited at the same time!

Living in a town the is bordered by the Passaic river I can definitely say to has been cleaned up, at least with dumping and sewage.  As a kid I would hang out at Bergen county park and I can attest that the shorelines of the river were the dirtiest smelliest stuff I ever saw.  That was in the 80's.  I was jogging down there a few weeks back and was shocked.  Not one piece of garbage.  I guess they finally got the river cleaned from dumping.  However, the damage done over the years from garbage to dioxins will take many years to clean up and be deemed perfectly safe. 

It's a start but in our lifetimes I doubt eating crab from the Hackensack river area and Newark Bay tributaries will be safe.

Nice to see things are getting better though.  Another thing in the end is that many of the areas accessible to the public in the meadowlands are closed off, at least in my town and area.

Nothing like some steamed crabs, cancer and stunted brain development for the little ones.

They do clean up the surrounding areas and cease the pollution that was rampant for the most part, but, and this is a big but, they can't  get all of the toxic waste out of the silt unless they dredge the entire bottom many feet down.  And the tides, currents, dredging, etc. keep it coming and going. They probably will open it to crabbing eventually, about the time they erect the new Soylent Green factory in the Meadowlands.

Thats' just why the State keeps it off limits. Some people feel they have the right to eat what they want and there should be no rules. That's fine, poison yourself. But once it's open, those little markets up there will have nice fat toxic crabs and an unsuspecting public will be buying them. Because of the pollution, commerical crabbing probably would not be allowed. But there are some who drown those comm pots w/o license and sell them to their friends who just happen to own markets. Same thing with blackfish. The AC Press ran a story on that in the fall. Actually had pictures of individuals catching illegal blackfish and putting them in coolers in their vehicles and going back for more. I saw the same thing at the Manasquan Inlet last fall. Best to just keep it off limits or those crabs will wind up being brought by people who are not aware of what toxic dump they originated in.
