Here is a link to our reports page with the 2016 Spring Migrant Harvest Report .
The Striped Bass Program is currently conducting additional studies on maturity and fecundity in striped bass with the primary objective of updating the maturity schedule (the age at which female striped bass become sexually mature).
The creel survey is a tool used in fisheries management to evaluate a recreational fishery resource by interviewing anglers returning from fishing trips.
Creel clerks intercept boats returning from fishing trips targeting striped bass and interview anglers to collect data about the numbers of striped bass kept or released and the amount of time and effort expended during a trip.
The instructions ask to record the first 20 fish they catch each day from the beginning of the trophy season until June 15th.
Results of these surveys are reported annually in the Chesapeake Bay Finfish Investigations federal aid project report issued to the U. Fish and Wildlife Service by Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
