Default Re: Archived striper History from as early as George Washington

In 1669 Plymouth Colony ordered that revenues from the fishery for striped bass be used to construct the first public schoolhouse in North America.

The striped bass has been a regulated spe- cies since the first settlement of the New World. The Massachusetts Bay Colony prohibited the use of striped bass as a fertilizer for corn and squash plantings by our earliest settlers.
