The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries has changed the daily bag limit and harvest days in the commercial striped bass fishery.
The 2014 commercial striper season will open June 23 with a new daily bag of 15 fish (down from 30 fish) per fisherman at a minimum length of 34”.
Commercial fishing days have also been cut. In 2014, striped bass may only be harvested on Mondays and Thursdays until the commercial quota is reached.
Recreational fishing limits for 2014 remain at 2 fish per angler per day at a minimum length of 28”.
