Default What is Stripers Forever?

Stripers Forever is a 100% volunteer internet-based organization with only
one purpose, which is to enhance public fishing for striped bass by
designating the striped bass a gamefish and ending commercial exploitation
of this vital recreational species. There is a complete presentation of our
position under Why A Gamefish on the SF website at
http://www.stripersforever.org/Info/gamefish
Membership is free, and you can sign
up on the website.

- Brad Burns President of Stripers Forever

Slowing commercial fishing and letting the stock return to what it was 30 years ago will take a long time but it would be immensely beneficial to the tourist industry and to the commercial industry. The amount of gas the commercial guys burn to get a reasonable catch is getting ridiculous. We need to regulate them for their own good and for the sake of the environment as a whole.

Whoa! I agree that Stripers should be a game fish and the cost benefit analysis would indicate that commercial fisherman use a lot of gas to make a profitable catch. But to regulate them because they use a lot of gas is out of the question. If that is allowed than an argument can be made that recreational boaters should be regulated because they burn gas for reasons other than making a living. Next big brother will be telling me I need to use public transportation. No thank you. If Stripers become a game fish than commercial fisherman will fish something else. I don't think its prudent to take a man's lively-hood away from him.

MB Read the info on the link.

Commercial fishing interests have a disproportional influence on fishery managers.
Making it a gamefish will stop the commercial harvesting and the destruction of larger breeding stripers. Read some posts in the Hudson river forum on the decline in numbers of the bigger females over the last 10 years despite what the overall population is.

Striper's Forever is supported Solely through donations. They have a lot of support from certain tackle Companies, guides donate trips fro auction etc. etc. There are no paid positions at Striper's Forever (aside from a recently hired lobbyist) all of the money that is donated goes directly to the mission. It is free to be a member as well.
