Default Rewards Offered for Some Striped Bass Tags

The New Jersey Bureau of Marine Fisheries, within NJDEP's Division of Fish and Wildlife, joined the efforts of other agencies by entering the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's (USFWS) Cooperative Coastal Striped Bass Tagging Program in 1989. The Cooperative Tagging Program has provided valuable information for striped bass restoration and conservation.

The tagging information has provided biologists with a better understanding of striped bass migration, mortality and spawning behavior. Through 2006, over 33,000 striped bass have been tagged in New Jersey alone and 7,614 have been recaptured and reported by fishermen from locations up and down the East Coast.

However, there is still a lot to be learned from the tagging program and angler assistance is needed in collecting and reporting striped bass tags.

Some striped bass tagged this spring carry new tags that offer a reward of $125. Rewards are also being offered for several other type tags. Help continue the valuable striped bass data collection effort. Be on the lookout for tags on striped bass when fishing this year. For more information on the different striped bass tags, various rewards and how to go about reporting, visit the following link: http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/ima...ag_flyer07.jpg .
