New York anglers will have an opportunity to oppose an attempt to increase the coastal commercial harvest of striped bass by 20 to 50 percent at public hearings scheduled for July 21 in East Setauket.
CCA is urging members in New York to mark their calendars and plan to to voice their opposition to Addendum II to Amendment 6 of the ASMFC Striped Bass Fishery Management Plan. We encourage you to forward this message on to your friends and fishing club to turn out as large a crowd as possible in opposition.
