"News & Issues" piece on the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA), which hopes to influence interstate policy regulating the commercial striper fishery. According to the CCA, the population of striped bass is on the decline all along the Atlantic coast and Maine's more stringent regulations should be adopted for the rest of the seaboard states. But the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, which regulates the fishery in 11 states, says it has no plans to change its standard. In 1999, Maine's Department of Marine Resources recorded a catch of 671,000 striped base. But of these, only about 21,000 were retained.
