CONNECTICUT FISHING LAWS AND REGULATIONS
Fishing laws or regulations are put into effect by each individual state in order to protect and improve fish populations. Fishing regulations are subject to change by season, by month or based on assessments of fish populations. For this reason, it is important to check the regulations on a regular basis to make sure you are following the current set of laws.

IT’S NOT A FEE, IT’S A CONTRIBUTION
Aside from standard catch and release best practices, deep water fish can require special treatment since they are subject to the effects of decompression. If you are fishing for cod or black sea bass of the coast of Connecticut, you can help with conservation by learning how to release these deep water species safely.
