Thanks. I thought that there was a fee, but had no idea what it was.

Here is a response from Pat Augustine in NY:

Reply from Pat Augustine:

Richard:
Thanks for your email. We plan on doing just that. We will be working on reducing the mortality rates on spawners and developing other methods to minimumize the pressure on these large breeders. If you can, Richard, follow the debate on the asmfc.gov website. Regards. Pat

Farm raised ? Made me wonder.



Ihad copies of the Pennsylvania, NY and NJ Fresh Water bulletins which I picked up at the Fly Fishing Show last January.



Somwhere in all of the regs, regional notes and a few general interest articles were the stocking numbers for trout in local waters in those three states.



The numbers where in the millions. Why not striped bass ? These fish are born in fresh water,and can easily survive in fresh. So it's not a salt water is different kind of thing. I don't know enough about this but I'm sure some of the members on SOL do. Can you chime in ? Thx.

That's great! I wish I even got an "I will take this into consideration". My rep's emails wouldn't even allow the email to send with a read receipt request.

Game fish status is the way to rid the comm. interest of stripers.imo


I'm sympathetic to what you're saying, but its just not reality..... in a political sense. theres too much money at stake to think that stripers will ever be granted gamefish status. and its also a reality that striped bass can be commercially fished with proper management- they've been doing so for years and could continue to be provided it was a more conservative limit.

the most egregious foul that needs correcting is the culling rule in North Carolina.... that fishery needs to be outlawed or converted to rod and reel
its all about da fishes...

I believe the EEZ winter fishery off the mid-Atlantic is a huge problem.

Charter and party boats need GPS transponders so they can be tracked.

Google up charter boat pages from Virginia and Maryland and see the spawner kill that goes on all winter down there.
