Abstract:

A stratified random sampling design was employed in which each of three sampling zones (New York, New Jersey and Upper Harbor underpier areas) were sampled once per month from February 1984 through April 1984. In calculating catch/effort, it does not appear that the underpier habitat is any more important than the interpier habitat for overwintering populations of striped bass.
