An amended Delaware tilefish regulation that reduces recreational and commercial harvest of the blueline and golden tilefish, species that have grown in fishing popularity in recent years, will take effect Jan. 11.
DNREC will hold a public meeting on Dec. 2 for residents of Bayshore communities and other interested parties to hear the results of a new engineering evaluation studying drainage issues along Delaware’s central Bayshore area.
