The DEC Bureau of Marine Resources is looking for help from anglers who target striped bass in New York.
DEC needs to
collect information about the striped bass caught by anglers to share
with researchers and resources management agencies. The Bureau of
Marine Resources will provide volunteers with logbooks and small
envelopes. Participating anglers record fish lengths and other
information about their catch and collect scale samples from each fish.
(Scale samples are used to determine the age of the fish). The
participating anglers forward the logbooks and scales samples to the
Bureau of Marine Resources. This catch and fish age information will
be used to help determine striped bass populations and to develop
management strategies for striped bass along the Atlantic coast.
You can find more information about this on the Striped Bass Cooperative Angler Program webpage.
If you would like to participate in the Striped Bass Cooperative
Anglers Program, please email the DEC Striped Bass Cooperative Angler
Program at the Bureau of Marine Resources at .
New York State recreational saltwater anglers can
also report their catch in a voluntary online angler logbook, called
eLogbook. eLogbook has tools to help anglers document their fishing
activities, compile their fishing data and plan more effective fishing
trips. New York's recreational anglers can also contribute needed
fishing data to researchers and resource managers by sharing what they
catch, the sizes of their catch, and where and when they fish.
Recreational angling information can be used by DEC and other coastal
resource agencies to assess catch levels, estimate discards, measure
fishing effort and determine fishery management strategies. eLogbook was
developed cooperatively by the Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics
Program and DEC Bureau of Marine Resources.
If you would like more information about electronic data collection or eLogbook, please visit the DEC Electronic Reporting web page.
If you wish to use this online logbook, please register and logon online at the Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program (ACCSP) web site.
