Charting the Course for Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass

A Brock Environmental Learning Series Webinar

Striped bass, also known as rockfish, are a quintessential part of Chesapeake Bay life and culture. Rockfish are the most highly sought-after recreational fish species in the Bay and support a robust commercial fishery. More than 70 percent of all rockfish along the East Coast are spawned in Chesapeake Bay waters. Unfortunately, recent data indicates that this beloved fish is in trouble. As fisheries managers chart the course for striped bass for the next 10 years, it is critical that a strong management framework is put in place that meets these challenges head-on.

Join fisheries experts from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, American Sportfishing Association, Maryland Fisheries, and the Coastal Conservation Association of Maryland as we discuss top priorities for the next phase of striped bass management in the Chesapeake Bay and what you can do to help ensure these fish are available for all to enjoy for generations to come.
