Striped Bass Limits Changed in Virginia

(ARLINGTON, VA)—Today the Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC) approved emergency changes to the regulations for Virginia’s striped bass fisheries, including lowering the daily limit for the fall recreational season from two fish to one fish.

Chesapeake Bay Foundation Senior Regional Ecosystem Scientist Chris Moore released the following statement.

“With the reduced numbers of striped bass found by the recent coastwide stock assessment, Virginia should be commended for taking decisive action at this time. Strong conservation-minded decisions such as this are needed all along the East Coast to bring back a thriving population of this iconic fish. The VMRC’s proactive measures to help improve the striped bass population is another positive sign that Virginia is serious about ensuring a healthier fishery in the future.”
