The location of the zones in the management areas are too specific to fully cover here, but they can be reviewed on NOAA’s fisheries website. Generally, the areas cover certain locations and zones at specific points along the East Coast from Massachusetts to northern Florida, all of which include waters close to shore. For example, the mid-Atlantic area includes a 20-mile radius outside of the New Jersey and New York ports, the port of Beaufort, North Carolina, and the entrances to the Delaware and Chesapeake bays. It also includes a body of water outside Block Island Sound and a continuous area of 20 nautical miles from shore between Wilmington, North Carolina, and Brunswick, Georgia. It appears many of the vessels in this area are likely caught in violation of the rule while transiting south for the winter.
