1@32 Pledge is an interim step that we are proposing to help reduce the harvesting of striped bass. While catch and release is always preferred, the pledge
is simple...in situations when you do not practice catch and release,
you pledge to only take one striped bass per day at no less than 32". The 1@32
Pledge applies to striped bass caught from the surf or shore, on private
boats, and party boats.
We are hopeful that the Pledge can help to rebuild the striped bass biomass, one angler at a time, as we wait patiently for the ASMFC to act. Please consider joining us in taking the Pledge.
We encourage you to share your Pledge with others via conversations, social media or other avenues. This grassroots movement will not only help striped bass, but will also serve as a “wake-up call” to the ASMFC that we are serious stewards of the resource.
Take the 1@32 Pledge now!
We have to begin somewhere and the 1at 32" gives a fish hopefully at least two shots at spawning. Who can argue against reducing the two fish take to ONE? A 50% reduction in take will increase the fishery's total numbers,too.

Should extend idea to annual limit based on need(how many fish do you need to eat in one winter)
