New Jersey is a state in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordered by New York to the north; the Atlantic Ocean to the east; the Delaware Bay to the south; and Pennsylvania to the west. The state’s natural resources are managed by the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.
The division is found within the Natural and Historic Resources Group in the NJ Department of Environmental Protection and focuses on protecting and managing the State’s fish and wildlife to maximize their long-term biological, recreational and economic values for all New Jerseyans. Despite being the most densely populated state in the nation, and the fifth smallest in area, New Jersey provides habitat for an incredible number and diversity of wildlife species. There are more than 400 species of vertebrate wildlife as well as 134 freshwater fish and 336 marine fish. Management of both game and nongame species includes the common goals of protecting and managing habitats and wildlife populations and maintaining wildlife diversity. This work has restored populations of wild turkey and peregrine falcons, as well as bald eagles and osprey. Beavers are again widespread, as are coyotes, and even secretive bobcat have extended their range in the state.
Per the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, New Jersey is home to 794,000 sportsmen who spend over $1.26 billion annually, supporting 16,905 jobs in the state.
