Striped Bass Rant Post and Pass

Striped bass in the Neuse River will never recover for these two reasons:

11)      Bycatch of unattended gill nets, both small mesh and large mesh nets in the Neuse River

But even if the nets were eliminated…..which is not the only option, strict attendance is another

22)    Neuse River (low flow system) has been stocked with brood stock sourced from the Roanoke River (high flow system).  These Roanoke River strain striped bass will not consistently, successfully spawn in a low flow system like the Neuse.  Furthermore, when they do successfully spawn, they only pollute the gene pool of the native Neuse River strain striped bass.  

By stocking Roanoke River sourced fish the NCWRC has created a put and take fishery, just like land locked lakes like Gaston !!!!!

They need to manage this fishery as a put and take fishery not for restoration.
