January 10 Reeling in Striped Bass: Conserving this Historic and Economically Vital Fish Gary Nelson, MA Division of Marine Fisheries; Department of Environmental Conservation at UMASS Amherst

For fishing enthusiasts, the spring migration of striped bass is a welcome sign that winter might be in the rear view mirror. A prized catch in annual derbies and tournaments, the striped bass’ history and economic importance in Massachusetts dates back to 1620. Hear about this history, the current status and trends in striped bass stocks, in addition to the conservation measures being taken to protect them for future generations.

In partnership with North and South River Watershed Association, MassAudubon – South Shore Sanctuaries and South Shore Natural Science Center.

Sponsored by:  Clean Harbors, Rockland Federal Credit Union, Mass Cultural Council, and Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke, and Scituate Cultural Councils.
