SAT TAGS: NORTHEAST STRIPED BASS STUDY

A revolutionary study initiated four years by Gray’s FishTag Research and The Fisherman Magazine has been deploying mini satellite tags on post-spawn striped bass off the Atlantic coast. The tags record salinity, depth, temperature, and location before detaching from the fish after a pre-set period of time. At that time, the tag begins transmitting that data so it can be analyzed. The findings from those tags have been eye opening and may disrupt the dogma that striped bass are strictly a coastal species. Listen to this fascinating project and how you can learn more and get involved.
