The Maryland Department of Natural Resources announced Friday that it has shut down the February striped bass gill net season after Natural Resources Police confiscated more than 10 tons of illegally caught striped bass in two days.

NRP seized the 20,016 pounds of rockfish from four illegally anchored gill nets found near Bloody Point Light, south of Kent Island in the Chesapeake Bay.
