2015 Commercial Individual Transferable Quota Striped Bass Season Modification
Friday, February 27, 2015

The Acting Secretary of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources pursuant to COMAR 08.02.15.12H announces that the 2015 commercial individual transferable quota (ITQ) striped bass fishery season for gill net will be extended from 3:00 a.m. March 2, 2015 through 11:59 p.m. March 13, 2015; weekends excluded. This extension is intended to help address the loss of fishing opportunity and income to the commercial fleet due to the extreme cold temperatures and ice on the Bay for the last couple of weeks. This extension poses little to no risk to the conservation and sustainability of the striped bass resource. A commercial striped bass permit holder in the ITQ fishery is limited to the quota assigned to their striped bass permit. All other rules and restrictions will remain in effect. The 2015 gill net common pool fishery will remain closed as the quota has already been achieved for February. For more information, see the Director of the Fisheries Service's memo to the Sport Fisheries and Tidal Fisheries Advisory Commissions here:
