ASMFC Meets today About The Striped Bass Stock Assessment Listen To It Live
Today from 10:15 to 2:30 pm the ASMFC will finally meet about the striped bass stock assessment. The question is what will they do with the information we already know? How will they protect the fishery, or will they even bother? Get ready to hear several people try to change the threshold numbers so they can continue to kill more bass and further deplete the stocks. Yes, this happens often at these meetings.
You can listen to the meeting live at the webinar link. ASMFC 2019 Spring Meeting.
