Juvenile striped bass seining program.
Virginia Institute of Marine Science
The research reported herein is directly related to priorities established in the "Action Plan" of the Emergency Striped Bass Study (Anadromous Fish Conservation Act Amendment, Public Law 96-118, the Chafee Amendment). The amendment was the result of a decline in striped bass landings along the Atlantic Coast since the mid-1970's. The Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) had a juvenile striped bass seining program from 1967 through 1973, but the program was discontinued after a loss of funding. This program was reinstated in 1980 with funding from the National Marine Fisheries Service under the Chafee Amendment. This report summarizes part of the work which has continued from 1980 to the present.
