Support Atlantic Striped Bass as the National Fish

Striped bass have formed the basis of one of the most important fisheries and natural resources on the Atlantic coast for centuries.  After a near collapse of the fishery, the stock has been rebuilt to sustainable levels through the hardship and dedication of recreational fishermen, improvements to habitat and water quality, and proper management.  Today, the stock supports one of the most important recreational fisheries along the Atlantic Coast.  The history of this fishery, along with its persistence embody the American spirit and is fully desiring of the designation of National Fish.
