Here is your chance to make a difference for striped bass.
The Atlantic coastal states and jurisdictions have scheduled hearings to gather public comment on Draft Amendment lV to Amendment 6 to the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Striped Bass.
Below is a comment crafted by Stripers Forever that you can e-mail to Mike Waine, Fishery Management Plan Coordinator. (Subject line: Draft Addendum IV.)
I believe that reductions in striped bass quotas should conserve the greatest number of large fish in the shortest amount of time. It has taken way too long to get a commitment to conservation while the harvesting limits have stayed level in spite of a documented decline in the species.... especially the large breeders. I support the 25% reduction in quota in one year, the elimination of all trophy seasons, and conservative maximum size restrictions protecting fish over 34" in length.
