Operation Striper Swiper is an ongoing mission for the Coast Guard along the mid-Atlantic coast.
“The goal is to enforce the striper regulations,” said Master Chief Petty Officer Stephen Atchley, the officer-in-charge of Shearwater. “Depending on the time of year, there are a lot of striped bass here in the bay that fishermen catch. It’s at the point where [the striped bass] move off shore to do their breeding, that is what we are trying to protect. To give them a chance to survive.”
