R.S.A The Marilyn Jean IV is a participant in the RSA (Research Set Aside) Permit program. Earlier this year, the MJ4 successfully bid on a portion of the Sea Bass, Porgy and Fluke quota which is set aside for research purposes. We now have a permit from the New York State DEC to “collect and possess” these species. Under this permit we are allowed to fish for “RSA” fish outside the published season in New York State with a different size and bag limit (We can’t use the permit during the open season). We are required to weigh the fish, clean the fish at the dock and report our catch to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and National Marine Fisheries Service.
