2015 commercial individual transferable quota (ITQ) striped bass fishery season for gill net will be extended from 3:00 a.m. March 2, 2015 through 11:59 p.m. March 13, 2015; weekends excluded. This extension is intended to help address the loss of fishing opportunity and income to the commercial fleet due to the extreme cold temperatures and ice on the Bay for the last couple of weeks. This extension poses little to no risk to the conservation and sustainability of the striped bass resource.

This means you can still get your favorite Chesapeake Bay fish for another couple weeks!!

Take a look at this video that we made showing the ice breakers out on the bay!
