The non-profit group Stripers Forever is planning a gathering in Foxboro, MA - May 20th 2006. Stripers Forever is leading the movement to make the Striped Bass a recognized game fish and there by prevent it from being commercially harvested.
"Stripers Forever strongly advocates passage of a federal bill H.R. #2059 introduced by Congressman Frank Pallone of N.J. This legislation would make the striped bass a gamefish both in all state waters, and in the EEZ waters more than 3 miles off the coast that come under federal control."
Zugbug got all excited about joining this group until he realized that it was S-T-R-I-P-E-R-S with one "P"..
