Someone please explain why there are years where the quota is over 100%?

As much as 15%!

In fact, with 7 of those years over quota, this adds to nearly 50% of another year!

Those figures should be subtracted from the target projection of following year quotas.

So, not feeling sorry for the 68% year one bit.....

 

 

 

 

I assume it’s from delays in reporting so guys were still fishing/selling without realizing the quota was already filled.

They did get subtracted from following  years quota. Quota not met however,  does not get added to following  year

Joe it make one wonder why each day after a selling day the numbers keep rising . No wonder they have the correct numbers at the close of the year. Some dealers just do not submit the records in a timely manner . Just think what that would do if they all decided to wait a week before making a report and multiply that out over the summer period .

Carl.......my understanding is the dealer is allowed to submit a weeks worth of data at a time.

I just added it up: 

  in 10 years, (which is not a large window of time  relatively speaking)

 the REPORTED kill of JUST commercial bass is 

 10,877,448 pounds.  

     All so guys can supplement their time on the water, and tourists 

 can eat a fish that they can't tell apart from a Black Sea bass when its on their 

 plate.  

 

   And this doesn't even take into account the recreational kill which is 

 certainly higher... and unreported poaching kill #'s.  

  

      Wish it would just be illegal to kill striped bass for a solid 5 years 

 for ALL sectors. 

 

  thats my opinion...  If you disagree, that's fine... you're entitled to your 

 perspective... but too many bass are getting hammered too fast , by everyone.

Striped bass....MA

 

Year        Pounds landed        % of quota landed       

2019              586,128                      67.4

    18              753,731                      88.9

    17              823,409                    102.8

    16              938,224                    107.9

    15              865,757                      99.5

    14          1,138,507                       98.6

    13          1,002,519                     100.5

    12          1,218,426                     115.2

    11          1,163,865                     109.6

    10          1,226,429                     108.7 

    09          1,160,453                     104.8

 

That’s a pretty dramatic drop in catches the last two years. It shows that there is a major problem with bass stocks. What do you guys predict this years catch will be? I think it’ll be less than 50% of the quota filled.

Now that the canal has been removed from the equation,  I'll bet it will be below 50%.

Still too little too late. It's a shame that this has happened. The fishery and the Canal in general. I have a photo on my desk at work of a shot of me with a keeper at 150 facing the Herring run parking lot with no one else to be seen in the picture. Not that old either; maybe 7 years so no spot burn. :point:

I agree 100%. ruining the bass population for gas $$ is a joke! and before you mention that over the past couple weeks large amounts of big bass have been caught, the areas they have been caught has been the equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel (like SOME days at the canal). once those schools move on its back to reality. the fishing is nowhere close to it was just 5 years ago! sad!

better question why is commercial striper fishing even allowed? nobody making a living off it and we can all go without it on the restaurant menu until the stock is replenished. just saying....

Opinions like yours are pretty ignorant......Just saying.........

My guess at this point...........somewhere between 50% and 60%
