Overview of Striped Bass Bonus Program at March 10 Science Saturday

Mar 04, 2018

The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Striped Bass Bonus Program allows anglers to participate in a management process while fishing with rod and reel. Learn more about the program on March 10, as Brendan Harrison, fisheries technician for the division’s Bureau of Marine Fisheries, visits Science Saturday. The presentation will run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the main building of the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, at 120 Long Beach Blvd. in Loveladies.

“Striped bass is one of the most sought-after recreational fish species in New Jersey,” said LBIF marketing and programs associate Jillian Schratz. “Learn about the program, its history and how you can participate.

“Brendan will also discuss the other programs and fieldwork conducted by division staff that help conserve one of N.J.’s most prized fisheries.”

Science Saturday, now in its 12th season, invites experts to speak about pressing scientific, ecological and sustainability issues that directly affect the shore environment and community.

A schedule of all upcoming lectures is available online at lbifoundation.org. Presentations will be held every Saturday through April 28, except for March 31.

No registration is required. Admission is free for Foundation members. A $5 donation per person is requested from all other attendees.

Breakfast treats and coffee are provided by Little Bite of Italy in Surf City.
