Default Message from Stripers Forever

To all that aren't members it is a free membership Stripers Forever is a group for us, recreational fisherman. They stress conservation and also support the Striped Bass as a game fish.

Dear Striped Bass Fisherman,
Our favorite fish is under more pressure than ever, and Stripers Forever, a free membership, internet-based organization, is fighting to end commercial fishing for wild striped bass and to manage the resource for personal use/recreational fishing. We need as many members as possible to show the politicians how many people depend on striped bass for recreation, food, and income.
If you haven't signed up yet as a member of Stripers Forever, here are a few things you should know:
Membership is free – no dues
There are no meetings to attend
Everything is done via the internet and e-mail
Many of the top fishermen in the country support Stripers Forever
Stripers Forever’s only goal is to make striped bass a game fish, which means it would be managed for the benefit of the recreational fishing public, now and for future generations
Here is all that you have to do to join - it will take less than a minute and costs nothing:
Select “Become A Member” from the top of the page.
Fill in the easy to follow sign-up sheet and submit.

This is a critical time for striped bass. We are preparing for the introduction of our Massachusetts bill to make striped bass a game fish in the upcoming legislative session. We will need every member's help to make this a reality. Help Stripers Forever successfully advocate to protect the wild striper by “Making It A Gamefish.”
Brad Burns, President of Stripers Forever
