Stripers Forever, a non-profit conservation organization, seeks game fish status for wild Striped Bass on the Atlantic Coast in order to significantly reduce Striper mortality, to provide sustainable public fishing opportunities, to secure the greatest socio-economic value possible from the fishery and to advocate for the conservation and responsible stewardship of wild Striped Bass from Maine to North Carolina.
The Release A Breeder Club is designed by Stripers Forever to promote the release of large “breeding size” stripers, which are mostly female fish.
There are two membership categories:
For anglers who release a breeder while fishing with or without a guide/captain.
For guides/charter boat captains who pledge to promote the release of breeders to their clients.
Joining the Club is FREE for both anglers and guides/charter boat captains. The rewards are a chance to win great prizes from Stripers Forever’s sponsors, an individualized membership package, recognition on the RBC membership pages of their website and, most importantly, the knowledge that you are doing your part to turn around the decline in Striped Bass.
