Striped Bass Bonus Program Update

August 10, 2004

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and Wildlife wants striped bass anglers to make note of a recent modification to the Striped Bass Bonus Program. At this time, the Division is not issuing or replacing 2004 Bonus Cards pending passage of legislation that will establish new striped bass management measures for the remainder of 2004.

This conservative strategy is necessary to ensure that New Jersey complies with the mandates of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission concerning the Striped Bass Bonus Program because there is the potential to over-harvest the bonus quota.

Striped bass bonus cards for the 2004 season will be re-evaluated after the legislation is passed. At that time, the Division will review this decision and revise the program, if necessary.

All bonus program participants will be notified through normal DEP procedures when more information becomes available.
