Does anyone know if it's legal in NJ to keep crabs caught using a seine net?

Interesting. Is that true only for crabs, or is it also legal to keep other by-catch (e.g., fish) caught in a bait seine, provided that you have the NJ bait net license and the catch in question would be legal to keep if caught on rod & reel or by other conventional means (in-season, meets minimum size requirements, etc.)?

I never use chicken as a bait for crabbing, I use bunker or any other types of fish that I have caught and saved. When I see chickens swimming in the bay or rivers then I'll start using them for bait. The state should ban the use of chicken as bait, it isn't good for the ecosystem of our bays and rivers.

There are plenty of animals and birds that die and end up in the water whole.  Those who use chicken don't use chicken poo, they use only the meat and bones.  What makes chicken bad for the ecosystem?  Crabs and fish seem to like chicken just fine.  I'll bet any leftover bait I throw in the water is gone within 24 hrs.

Chicken is only bad for the ecosystem if you don't take it out of the package (or bucket if using KFC). If you catch a chicken in a seine net, I recommend pulling out the liver and using it for catfish before crabbing.

so, chickens are legal to keep if caught in a seine net. are they salty after cooking?

You really gotta check the old posts on this. These rumors were started by bait shops that sell over priced bunker. And that's a fact. And I see chickens swimming in upper Barnaget Bay all the time. Or at least they taste like chicken. Plovers?
