Smaller stripers and fewer of them

SMALLER STRIPERS & FEWER OF 'EM



January 13, 2008 -- STRIPED bass fishing along the East Coast took a downward turn last season in the number of fish caught per hour and in the average size of those fish, according to the fifth annual membership survey conducted in 2007 by Stripers Forever.
"When we first conducted the survey in 2003, the majority of anglers felt the recreational fishery for wild striped bass was improving," said Brad Burns, president of Stripers Forever. "But the numbers have been steadily moving in a negative direction ever since. In 2007, almost three times as many anglers reported catching fewer fish per hour than in previous years, and more than 2 = times as many anglers said their catch comprised smaller fish."
Stripers Forever is a non-profit, internet-based organization advocating game fish status for the wild striped bass on the Atlantic Coast by eliminating the commercial harvest and managing the resource for recreational fishermen.
In-depth studies show that game fish status for stripers would create the greatest financial and social benefits for the largest number of people.
A record number of 621 recreational striped bass anglers reporting from every Atlantic coastal state participated in the Stripers Forever survey for 2007. The complete survey results are available at www.stripersforever.org by selecting Annual Membership Fishing Survey in the center of the Web site home page.
