Coast Guard trying to stop offshore poaching

Posted: Updated:
The Coast Guard plans to intensify efforts to stop offshore poaching of Atlantic Striped Bass this winter.  The Coast Guard is conducting outreach to educate the public on federal regulations governing the Atlantic Striped Bass fishery as well as safety precautions for the winter boating season. If a person is caught fishing for, or in possession of striped bass while in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ,) they are subject to civil fines.  The EEZ begins three nautical miles from shore and extends out to 200 nautical miles.  The Coast Guard has set up an Atlantic Striped Bass Reporting Hotline at (757) 398-6399.  Calls should include a description of the activity, those involved, the location and the time of the suspected offense.
