So If You Could Pick 1 Species Of Fish To Flourish In Your State

Ocean temp, salinity, Gulf Stream, whatever, if you could pick 1 reasonable species of fish to rebound or merely show up and truly flourish in NJ, becoming either a new or rebounded fishery, what would it be?

 

By "reasonable," I mean something that's theoretically possible.  Halibut or Cod moving south.  Reds or Sheepshead moving north.  Inshore Lobster, whatever.  Let's say "East Coast," minus the true exotics that simply can't exist north of Florida.

 

1 species.  It becomes a solid, dependable, sustainable fishery.  If the fishing gods granted you that one request, what would you take?

As a Marylander, I think I'm required to say Stripers? Just because of our fishing economy, and how it'd affect other states.

 

Selfishly, I'd like to say Bluefish however.

If they had a protected status, and were treated properly - they'd be a healthy attraction.

As a Marylander, I think you are required to say Rockfish!  :howdy:

 

...would like to to catch a dozen or so Cobia a season from the beach.
