The age composition, as determined from scale impressions, of striped bass stocks in the James, York, and Rappahannock Rivers during the period June 1967 - March 1968 indicates a relative deficiency of the 1966 year class in the James River. Similar results are shown in samples from non-selective gear (pound nets, fyke nets), selective gear (gill nets, haul seines, hook-and-line), and routine surveys using a 30-foot semi-balloon trawl.
