Striped Bass Stock Assessment?
Wondering where the preliminary numbers are for 2008? I have heard rumors here and elsewhere that the Striped Bass stock assessment numbers are way down.
I thought that the Stock Assessment Workshop's (SAW) preliminary assessment numbers are published in January, and posted online at ASMFC's website in February following the year assessed.
Here it is approaching the end of April, the new Striper Season almost upon us, and all we have are rumors . . . ???
Does someone out there know the deal . . . ???
