Striped Bass Conservation License Plate

Striped Bass Conservation License Plate

Interested in having a Striped Bass license plate?

The purpose of the plate is to help fund projects and activities for the conservation of saltwater fish, with a focus on striped bass, for ecosystem sustainability, habitat conservation, and angler education. Examples of projects include:

    • Studies of striped bass populations, stock structure, movements and local ecology
    • Studies of angler practices to improve hook-and-release release survival
    • Habitat improvements, including efforts to enhance diadromous fish (e.g. river herring, eels) passage for improved forage for striped bass
    • Development and distribution of materials and programs to educate anglers on the importance and means of improving the conservation of marine fisheries resources

    To bad they can’t make it generic, so everyone could participate and contribute.

    This plate got introduced just after Kevin and I got our Sportsman Land Trust plates- the one with the deer head on it. Bad timing. Maybe we need to get another vehicle. Just a note-it took a year to get enough people for these to get made.

      Stormy is gone, and we’ve made it tougher to post comments, as well as having us manually approve any comments made on the blog. It does take time, though, and this time of year we’re pretty busy in the shop. We’ll do our best.

    And I reserve the right not to be exposed to your sickness. It’s about time Surfland stepped up here, showed some class and barred SD from this site. Really ruins it for the serious fisherman.

      Very true. Stormy is gone, and we’ve made it tougher to post comments, as well as having us manually approve any comments made on the blog. It does take time, though, and this time of year we’re pretty busy in the shop. We’ll do our best.

    Thank you. I bet that reel is mounted on a air wave rod? Good fishing to you.
