Fisheries managers move to curtail Atlantic striped bass catch

Spurred by a warning about increased fishing pressure on already over-fished Atlantic striped bass, East Coast fishery managers took emergency action in early May to curtail the recreational catch of the popular species while preparing for potentially more restrictions next year.
