Abstract

Numerous estuaries in the lower Chesapeake Bay region and coastal Virginia possess physical, chemical and biological properties favorable· to their use as nursery grounds for striped bass. Many of them, however, are not so utilized because of the absence of associated spawning grounds. This project was designed to investigate the feasibility of stocking such underutilized nursery grounds as a management device, while monitoring population parameters such as age composition, mortality rates and relative abundance of year classes .
