Question 38

Olive Crane gives notice that she will ask the Minister responsible Fisheries the following questions:

Date Submitted : November 26, 2014

Is there a three -day fishery for striped bass in Island waters? If so what were the catches like? Will this fishery be expanded? Have striped bass been found in any of the smelt nets as a bi-catch?


Date answered : December 04, 2014
Striped bass are managed by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and any management measures, science or statistics would be the responsibility of DFO. In 2014, DFO authorized additional days in the retention fishery. The recreational fishery operated from May 1 to 21, August 1 to 21 and September 24 to 30. Anglers were asked to submit catch reports directly to DFO.

Department staff have been advised by DFO that a science assessment will be carried out in early December at which time results from the recreational fishery will be reviewed. Results are not available at this time.

DFO has acknowledged that striped bass are captured occasionally in the smelt box net fishery.
