Distribution and Abundance of Striped Bass (Roccus Saxatilis, Walbaum) on the Florida Gulf Coast

Striped bass, Roccus saxatilis, (Walbaum), occurs in all major river systems along the Florida Gulf Coast from the Suwannee River west to the Perdido. The only striped bass population in West Florida known to spawn successfully was in the Apalachicola River Drainage. The population level for the other rivers was too low to maintain a sport fishery. The Apalachicola River stock of striped bass is discussed in detail.
