MD Meeting set for striped bass regulation changes
Tuesday, September 9, 2014

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Service wants all stakeholders to be aware that the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) is considering management options to reduce fishing mortality along the Atlantic coast and in Chesapeake Bay for both commercial and recreational fisheries. These reductions are being considered by ASMFC to reverse the declining trend in female spawning stock biomass. For more details, click here: ASMFC Striped Bass Public Hearing Information.
