NJ American shad fishery has been closed for 2013 with some exceptions

Effective January 1, 2013, all American shad fisheries in New Jersey (both commercial and recreational), with the exception of the Delaware Bay, Delaware River and its tributaries, will be closed (no possession, take or harvest). The recreational possession limit in the Delaware Bay, Delaware River and its tributaries will now be 3 fish with no minimum size and an open season all year.

This shouldn't pose a problem to recreational anglers since the Delaware River is where almost all shad fishing in NJ takes place.
