CONGRESSMEN:

A note about email to members of the House is in order. Many Congressman and Congresswomen will not accept email from anyone who is not a constituent. Their own websites, (they all have them), will usually direct you to a House of Representatives email system which will send the message only if the sender’s zip code falls into the Congressman’s district. That is not to say that the Congressmen do not have other email addresses, because they do. We have included all email addresses that we are aware of.  You can also visit the House of Representatives contact page to find your representatives.

ABOUT US

Welcome to the official web site for Stripers Forever, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to making the striped bass a gamefish. By eliminating commercial exploitation of the #1 recreational saltwater fishery on the east coast, over 3,000,000 recreational anglers will enjoy the social and financial benefits that will come from an improved striped bass population.

MISSION STATEMENT

Stripers Forever advocates for the conservation and responsible stewardship of wild striped bass along the Atlantic Coast.

Stripers Forever, a non-profit, internet-based conservation organization, seeks game fish status for wild striped bass on the Atlantic Coast in order to significantly reduce striper mortality, to provide optimum and sustainable public fishing opportunities for anglers from Maine to North Carolina, and to secure the greatest socio-economic value possible from the fishery.
