Striper Fishing: North Carolina, Maine
www.brfff.com [cached]
A big spawning year in 1982 was the key to the striped bass recovery, says Pat Keliher, executive director of the Coastal Conservation Association. The striper class of 1982 grew up to be the "big ones" that thrilled anglers when the sport began to skyrocket in popularity in the early 1990s.
Fishing pressure, though, has now removed many of the big stripers (keepers now must be 40 inches or longer) from the population. "Now a 40-inch fish is hard to find. There's not a lot of them around - not a lot at all," Keliher says.
Still, the smaller "keepers" - stripers 20 - 26 inches - are extremely abundant this year, thanks to a big spawning year in 1993. Waiting in the wings is the class of '96, which is estimated to be the biggest on record. By 2004, the big ones should be back in force.
"Be happy with the small ones and look to the future for the bigger fish to be coming along," Keliher advises.

Keliher is vowing to grow the economic value of the state's oldest industry, commercial fishing, and the coastal communities that rely on the ocean.
...
Patrick Keliher, who was sworn in Jan. 26 as the Department of Marine Resources commissioner, thinks those numbers can go up. While protecting the fisheries resources has to be the No. 1 priority - no fish, no fishermen - Keliher more can be done to promote seafood and give fishermen flexibility so they can maximize the value of their catch.
While the value of the catch typically tops $400 million, there is no price tag to measure the industry's value to Maine, he said.
"If the fishing industry goes away, our coast looks totally different," he said in an interview in his office in Hallowell.
...
Keliher grew up in Gardiner and spent summers on Cliff Island in Casco Bay, helping his cousins pull lobster traps. In his career, he has been executive director of the Atlantic Salmon Commission, which was later rolled into the DMR, and head of the department's Bureau of Sea Run Fisheries and Habitat.
As commissioner, Keliher oversees a department with a $20 million budget and fewer than 200 employees. The state has more than 9,000 active fishermen and 3,500 licensed seafood dealers.
The focus on business development represents a shift for the department, Keliher said. He plans to soon hire somebody with business savvy and experience to market and maximize the value of the industry. In recent years, the department has acted primarily as a management agency without looking at the business side of fishing and identifying financial opportunity, he said.
"I've got all kinds of fisheries policy people, I've got all kinds of fisheries scientists," Keliher said.
...
But there's a danger in having so much of the value on a single species, Keliher said. It would be devastating if lobster falters, he said, making it all the more important to boost other fishing sectors, such as groundfish, scallops, and urchins, which have suffered from overfishing, volatility and strict regulations.
"We need diversity," he said.
