New striped bass regulations being implemented

STEWIACKE — Concerns by recreational fishermen about a forced shutdown of the striped bass fishery have been alleviated following a meeting with Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO).
But that doesn’t mean fishermen will get to take home what they catch.
“We are not anticipating a closure of the striped bass fishery in 2008,” said DFO spokesman Greg Stevens. “We’ll likely put in place some hook-and-release provisions and perhaps some gear restrictions.”
Almost 100 fishermen attended a meeting at Stewiacke fire hall last week to discuss the future of the local striped bass
fishery.
Spawning concerns had caused DFO officials to consider shutting down the fishery in parts of the Stewiacke and Shubenacadie rivers.
Fishermen overwhelmingly rejected that option, however, they were in favour of the catch-and-release alternative.
Stevens said the general feeling in the room was one of, “we’re not interested in killing fish, we’re interested in fishing.’”
Recreational fisherman Russell Buffett agreed.
Buffett said he doesn’t keep his catches anyway and estimated about 95 per cent of those fishing the rivers were in favour of some type of control, just not an outright ban.
“... I mean nobody is really starving and if the bass are in trouble you might as well just fish them for fun,” he said. “And if they’re really in trouble you might as well not fish them at all.”
DFO is expecting to implement the catch-and-release policy by next week and have it run until mid June.

This link and data shows a very good trend in the number of catch and release bass. Notice the numbers for recreational harvest in table 6 for 1985 compared to 2000.
Nice to see the trends for catch and release continue.
