Virginia Survey Results For Striped Bass Is Encouraging

The initial results of a monitoring program of striped bass hatched this spring in tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay are in. The results suggest the Bay's most coveted game fish is rebounding from one of the worst juvenile survey results on record.

The Virginia Institute of Marine Science says although the 2013 survey was just average, it tops the 2012 results. The institute says improved results this year can offset less productive years.

The Bay's striped bass population has recovered from historic lows in the late 1970s and early 1980s, primarily because of fishing bans that were enacted by Virginia, Maryland and Delaware in the late 1980s. Stripers, or rockfish as they are more commonly known around the bay, are now considered recovered.
