Abstract

The research reported herein (and in the 1982 through 1987 annual reports) is directly related to Priority III stated in the "Action Plan" (p. 15) of the Emergency Striped Bass Study (Anadromous Fish Conservation Act Amendment, Public Law 96-118). The amendment was the result of a decline in striped bass (Morone saxatilis) landings from Maine to North Carolina since the mid-1970's. This report summarizes the results of the Fall 1988 and Spring 1989 sampling periods and compares these results with the previous work.
