NH Seeks Striped Bass Survey Volunteers

To better manage the local striped bass resource, the New Hampshire Fish & Game Department’s Marine Fisheries Division has conducted Striped Bass Volunteer Angler Surveys since 1993. Now the state is looking for volunteers to help with this year’s survey.

Angler volunteers fill out logbooks to provide Fish & Game with information on their fishing trips. The volunteers are able to supply length data on catch-and-release fish, information that is not obtained through annual creel surveys. The data collected from these anglers are used by state and federal fisheries biologists to assess the status of the striped bass population each year.
