Calling all Chesapeake Bay Anglers: Reward -- Striped bass wearing green tags

Biologists want to study the striped bass they tagged earlier to see whether the striped bass have gotten sicker, healthier or stayed the same. The results could guide Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) officials in responding to mycobacteriosis, a mysterious wasting disease that now infects more than half the Chesapeake Bay's striped bass. The tags include a toll-free number to call.

Anglers get $5 for calling in a catch, or $20 if they keep the fish on ice for scientists to retrieve.  (from WMDT- 45)
