JOIN THE NORTHEAST STRIPED BASS TAG STUDY TEAM
Utilizing state of the art satellite tags, we hope to get a better understanding of the seasonal movements of Atlantic striped bass.

Join the Northeast Striped Bass Tag Study today!

Send your $10 contribution and receive a 3R sticker to show you're a part of the team. Together, Gray FishTag Research, Navionics and The Fisherman Magazine developed a satellite tagging study for striped bass with a forward-looking objective to pioneer a new level of understanding about striped bass.

In May of 2019, we tagged a pair of post-spawn stripers with state-of-the-art satellite tags as they began their spring migration from the Hudson River. These satellite tags are cutting edge, so our expectations for better understanding striped bass behavior and distribution were pretty high. Thanks to considerable funding provided by Navionics, we were able to utilize the best satellite tag technology in the field today to collect data about the behavior and long-distance movement of striped bass. Those tags have since been recaptured and now you can read about Freedom and Liberty and where they traveled in the summer of 2019.

Looking to the future, we have already received commitments from several generous organizations to purchase additional tags for the ongoing study (each tag costs roughly $5,000), and now here is YOUR OPPORTUNITY to help, too. In October we began the 3R's of Striped Bass campaign. Defined as RELEASE properly, REDUCE mortality, and REBUILD striped bass, the concept of the 3R's is something that all of us, regardless of which angling category we fall into, should be able to support. Purchase a sticker today for just $10 and not only do your part to show support for the rebuilding of the striped bass stock, but help to fund additional satellite tags as part of the ongoing efforts in the Northeast Striped Bass Study.

Through March 12, 2020, we have received $28,345 towards the deployment of more tags thanks to financial support from the following:
