It means that NJ law now allows access to tidal waters per the concept of the Public Trust Doctrine. I lifted this off a website:

"Rooted in Roman law, the public trust doctrine recognizes the public right to many natural resources including “the air, running water, the sea and its shore.”

Thanks. One thing I hope someone can clarify is...will this new law offer new access to waterfront that is currently inaccessible ?

Only if you walk. NO PARKING sign business is going to increase substantially.

It means after you're ticketed or arrested for trespass, once you spend a couple of grand in legal fees you'll win your case!
