Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s Atlantic Striped Bass Stock Assessment Workshop sponsored by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission is scheduled for September 11-14, 2018 at the Commission’s office at 1050 North Highland Street, Suite 200A-N, Arlington, Virginia. The assessment will evaluate the condition of Atlantic striped bass stocks from Maine to North Carolina. The workshop is open to the public, with the exception of discussion of confidential data when the public will be asked to leave the room. 

The deadlines for the submission of data and alternate models have passed. The final step in the assessment process is a formal peer review. This will be conducted at the Northeast Fisheries Science Center’s 66th Stock Assessment Workshop, November 27-30, 2018. The Atlantic Striped Bass Management Board will be presented the findings of the assessment and peer review at the Commission’s Winter Meeting in February 2019.
