New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is seeking volunteer recreational striped bass anglers to help provide valuable data they consider critical to track population dynamics for striped bass in New York waters.
The Striped Bass Cooperative Angler (SBCA) Program assists DEC by collecting and providing data about fishing trips that can help to better understand New York’s dynamic striped bass population. Get involved in conservation and management through the SBCA, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (631) 380-3308.
A new online logbook is now available for SBCA volunteers. Using the Survey123 app enables anglers to log their trips directly on their phone or from a computer. You can find instructions on how to install the app and log trips and more information about the SBCA online.
