A new benchmark stock assessment for bluefish has just been completed.  The assessment is so new that the entire document is not yet available, although a summary has been posted onthe Northeast Fisheries Science Center’s website.

However, even the summary confirms something that anglers and fisheries managers have both known for years.

Bluefish are predominantly a recreationally caught species, with recreational harvest making up approximately 80% of total removals in recent years.
