The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commissionís Atlantic Striped Bass Management Board initiated an addendum to address illegal striped bass harvest.

The Boardís action is in response to recommendations of the Interstate Watershed Task Force (IWTF). The IWTF conducted a multiyear, multijurisdictional investigation on illegal striped bass harvest within Chesapeake Bay, which resulted in over $1.6 million dollars in fines levied against 19 individuals and 3 corporations for more than 1 million pounds of illegal striped bass harvested estimated to be worth up to 7 million dollars.
