Weekly Harvest Programs

Updated June 14, 2019

Scup Weekly Program

Food Fish License Holders Only

Effective Saturday, June 15, 2019, the scup weekly program has ended.

Summer Flounder Weekly Program

NYS Summer Flounder Permit Holders Only

Effective Wednesday, May 1, 2019, the summer flounder (fluke) weekly program has ended.

The DEC is seeking feedback on a potential new cooperative weekly program January through April of 2020. In order to increase efficiency of the winter commercial summer flounder fishery, participants would be allowed simultaneous possession of weekly limits for cooperating states including Connecticut and most likely Rhode Island and would allow the landing of a state's weekly trip limit (only) while possessing onboard the trip limits of other cooperating states. We want to know:

  1. If NYS opted-in to this program, would you be interested in participating?
  2. If not, why?

Your feedback is very valuable to us. Please contact the Commercial Fisheries Unit at commercial.fisheries@dec.ny.gov.
