Division of Fish & Wildlife announces required reductions in 2015 striped bass recreational and commercial harvest

DOVER (Nov. 19, 2014) – The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) recently approved an addendum to the regional Atlantic Striped Bass Interstate Fisheries Management Plan that requires all states in the striped bass management unit to reduce their 2015 recreational and commercial coastal striped bass harvest by 25 percent. DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife today announced steps toward implementing the regulation change in Delaware, with a public hearing and accompanying 30-day public comment period to be scheduled early next year to solicit input on recreational options.

My two cents if you are an interested angler gather your outdoor fishing friends and attend these meetings when they occur. Without your input how can your interests be made known?

This goes for anglers all along the eastern seaboard that have an interest in the shared striped bass fishery. I am sure there will be public meetings in your area as this unfolds.
