Stripers Forever members ? Survey last call ....
We have already completed a region by region announcement of our annual survey, and the preliminary results are very interesting. There is still time though, for you to fill out your survey if you have not already done so. We'd be happy to add your responses to the others that we've received before we tabulate the results. Please read the following bulletin. If you have already responded you should have received a thank you e-mail from Stripers Forever. We can use only one response per angler.
The information we gather may not be considered scientifically accurate, but it does show trends in the striped bass fishery that will be of interest to fishery managers. The surveys also establish baselines for future reference. As always, the results of the survey will be reported to our members, posted on our website, and sent to each and every fishery manager on the ASMFC ? the appointed body of state representatives charged with the management of striped bass. We'll also have a press release detailing the results of the survey.
We've changed the form a little this year to make it easier to fill out. Please do your best to follow the prompts in the form. When it asks that you delete all but the correct answer, it would be helpful if you could do it that way. No doubt some members will suggest that we use an Excel form, but too many of our members are without this software, making it impractical. If you are subscribed to more than one state please only send us one survey. You should receive a thank you from us that let's you know we received it.
There are two ways you can complete the survey: 1.) The survey is included as part of this email. You can just hit "Reply", fill it out, and send it back to us.
2.) On the Stripers Forever website http://www.stripersforever.org/Home/
you can download the survey as a Word document. You will see it under News and Announcements on the top right of the home page. After completing the survey you can send it to us as an attachment to an email. (our address is [email protected]
Every member's input is welcome and encouraged.
P.S. If you are sending this to your fishing friends - and we hope that you do - please remind them to sign up as members at no charge. We will only tabulate the responses from individuals who are members of Stripers Forever.
