Default Tagged Striper from New Jersey

Hey guys yesterday i caught a tagged striper from new jersey but there wasn't a phone number on the tag.....I'm hoping someone can help me find who might of tagged this fish because i can't for the life of me remember....i did write the tag number down.

It was a yellow wire type of tag through the back of the fish behind the dorsal fin and the nose was also clipped.

Your supposed to keep the tag in unless your eating it of course. There's gotta be a number somewhere to call. I know in the Massachusetts Saltwater Recreational Fishing Guide it says there's an address you have to contact but you didn't mention an address. Here's what it says in the guidebook:

"Tagging - Periodically the Division conducts tagging studies of a particular finfish species
to develop a better understanding of local movements, habitat preference, migration,
growth, and general abundance. The angler plays a significant role in retrieving valuable
data. Carefully examine your catch for tags. If found, record the tag number if returning fish
to water, or snip off the tag if keeping fish. Contact the address printed on the tag and you
will be briefed on the tagging study and may even receive a reward. Note: Recently, striped
bass, black sea bass, and tautog have been tagged in our waters. The Division participates
in federal tagging programs as well. Some large, long-term tagging programs are carried
out by the following organizations:
U.S. Fish & Wildlife, 1825Virginia Ave., Annapolis, MD 1-800-448-8322
Vv

Shark Tagging Program, National Marine Fisheries Service, Narragansett Lab
South Ferry Rd., Narragansett, RI 02882, (401)782-3320

American Littoral Society, Sandy Hook, Highlands, N.J., 07722 , (732)291-0055

The Billfish Foundation, 2051 NW 11th Street, Miami FL 33125, (305)649-8930
Hudson River Foundation, P. O. Box 1731 Grand Central Station, NY 10163"



Maybe you should try to contact the one in New Jersey since you said you caught the fish there.....wouldn't hurt to try.

Hopefull you get a reward....
