It’s been some time since recreational anglers and commercial interests had an OK Corral-style dust up.
That changes tonight, when the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission takes testimony on a plan to increase the striped bass commercial catch on the Eastern Seaboard.
The get-together is scheduled to start at 5:30, not exactly convenient for the commuting public, but when has that ever been a concern? It will be held in the first-floor conference room at Department of Natural Resources headquarters at 580 Taylor Ave.
I think they’ll need a bigger room.
The official name for this proposal is Addendum II to Amendment 6 to the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission Striped Bass Fishery Management Plan.
