MEETING TO BE HELD JUNE 16 TO DISCUSS
RECREATIONAL STRIPED BASS DATA

MOREHEAD CITY - How many striped bass are caught by recreational anglers around Oregon Inlet and what is the best way for North Carolina fisheries managers to collect this information?

The N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission’s Northeast Regional AdvisoryCommittee will meet June 16 at 6 p.m. to discuss this data need. The meeting will be held at the Dare County Administration Annex Building, 204 Ananias Dare Street, in Manteo.

In recent years, recovering populations of striped bass have created a rapidly developing recreational fishery in the Atlantic Ocean along the Outer Banks, especially around Oregon Inlet. The committee will discuss ways to accurately capture data on the number of fishing trips, and the amount of fish harvested in this fishery, especially when the striped bass season is closed in the Albemarle and Roanoke sounds. Charter boat captains, along with recreational ocean striped bass fishermen, are encouraged to attend this meeting.

For more information about this meeting, please call Jess Hawkins at 252-726-7021or800-682-2632, or Sara Winslow at 252-964-3911 or 800-338-7804.
