By submitting this form, I agree that wild striped bass, like other recreationally valuable species, should be managed as a game species in order to protect them from the pressure of commercial exploitation. I understand that membership is free and that I will be contacted by email to inform me how to help make our shared goal a reality.
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.
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.
