NFC: Re: Collecting banded Sunfish

Just a small correction here Jay, I think the fish you might be referring to
is the Blackbanded sunfish, not the Banded sunfish. I live in PA, not sure
of Jersey laws but you probably just need a fishing license to go
collecting, and I don't think that they are endangered in Jersey. Check the
NFC site and go to the articles, there should be something on the
Blackbanded sunfish.
