Welcome to East Coast Fishing Conservation Info

Thanks for you interest in this page. I'm new to this, so it may take some time for me to get the hang of it.

First, I'll introduce myself a little. My name is Chris, and I'm a Striped Bass recreational fisherman from New York.

Recently, there's been a lot of news about various fish species on the East Coast being harvested illegally, leading to huge population decreases. If nothing is done about it, many of these species could die out, causing a chain reaction that kills off every recreationally fished sea creature on the East Coast.

I'm going to try and update my blog with 1 post a day, to allow my followers to gain information but not be overloaded. Some days may have more than one post, and others may have none, depending on my work schedule (and if the fish are biting, of course).
Before I get into the current news and organizations about the topic, I'm going to make posts discussing the species of fish that I'll be talking about.

Thanks for reading, please follow my blog, and come back often to view updates.
Get involved and maybe, together, we can make a change for the better here on the East Coast.


  1. Sounds good, cant wait to learn more about the fish on the east coast!

  2. I lived for quite a while on the East Coast and I'm ashamed to see what it has become - right now I am looking into various statistical data about fish life around the world, and will possibly be posting it in my blog sometime.
    Keep up the good fight.
    Keep us posted.

  3. An interesting idea, never been much of a fisher myself haha, did catch a rainbow runner once though off moreteon bay in queensland.
