wildman

heres the info your looking for.

Executive Order: Protection of Striped Bass and Red Drum Fish Populations
October 2007

http://www.stripersforever.org/Info/Stripers_Research/

What this means is this order pertains to is the EEZ zone. Striped bass and red drum caught within the Exclusive Economic Zone
Thats 3 miles off of the coast to 200 miles in the atlantic.
Individual States still reserve the right to manage commercial and recreational quotas within the inshore boundries complying with the ASFMC imposed guidelines.
"including State designation as gamefish where the State determines appropriate under applicable law; "

HR2625 is a bill that was introduced to the 110th Congress in June 2007

Thanks striprejim for the reply but that only confuses me more.
I knew it was illegal to posess stripers in the EEZ zone becouse of federal regulations.So from what i see they are gamefish under fed but not state? THATS DUMB

Well at least its not up to the ASMFC and their public comment hearings and flawed science whether the EEZ zone is opened or not.
An executive order puts the federal stamp on it.
The Feds shouldnt have too much power over the states anyway.

To prohibit commercial fishing entirely for striped bass the Bill has to pass the house and senate before it is signed into law. As of this writing it is in a 48 member Congressional Committee on Natural Resources. If it passes in the house then it goes to the Senate for review.
Its not a bad idea to follow along with who votes for and against so we remember when we go to the polls to vote.
Track it here

attached is a pdf file from the ASMFC outlining states with commercial rights and quotas. virus scanned
*PRFC stands for Potomac River Fish Commision that incidently gets another 600,000 lbs of commercial quota not included in the 4 million pounds Maryland and Virginia are allowed per.
North Carolinas 800,000 pounds is actually smaller by comparison.

States that have made striped bass a game fish, include Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C. and South Carolina.

Next month the Massachusetts state joint committee on environment, natural resources and agriculture will hold a hearing on the game fish bill.

My questions why would a state become a voluntary member of the ASMFC? By doing so it kinda takes the states' wishes as to managing the resource out of the equation, doesn't it?

Each state has three representative votes.
It stands to reason that you need to make sure your representative attendees help prevent a quorum against your interests.
If not, the opposition would stack the deck against you. Especially if the only attendees would have commercial interests.
Each state must comply within the guidelines set forth by the ASMFC as mandated in the Magnusen Stevenson act.
