DID YOU KNOW?
Striped bass, as well as other commercial fisheries, have size limits on when they can be harvested. This ensures successful spawning for future generations as female striped bass can release up to 400,000 eggs in her first years, but that may increase to up to 4,000,000 eggs for a large, healthy, older female.
