Free Webinar On Striped Bass Management: Hooked On Science

Want to know more about striped bass management from the perspective of some of those who study striped bass on a day-to-day basis?  The next seminar being presented through Rutgers Cooperative Extension as part of their Marine Extension Program Seminar Series (MEPSS) is titled Striped Bass Management: Hooked on Science, and will be held on Monday, April 26 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
