Stripers Forever calls for 10-year moratorium on striped bass

Stripers Forever is calling for a 10-year moratorium on commercial and recreational striped bass harvesting. Local and state measures are already in place to bolster the species, such as using circle hooks instead of j hooks to reduce mortality.
Stripers Forever, an angling conservation organization, is calling for a 10-year complete moratorium on the recreational and commercial harvest of striped bass.

According to a press release, the organization is suggesting that the 10-year management plan created by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) has failed to yield positive results, and the species has yet to rebound.
