There was a fire yesterday at theBelford, N.J. Seafod Co-Op, but it appears the damage wasn’t as severe as at first suspected. The marshes were blackened, but when Dave Lilly checked the area today the old building was standing and looked as if it would be operational.
Th Ocean Explorer got offshore from Belmar yesterday and found some of the targeted cod along with a few ling while fishing on a flat ocean in warm temperatures. They plan on fishing for cod daily. The marine forecast is for southwest winds at 10-15 knots in the morning before increasing later to 15-20 with gusts to 25.
