Spawning of the Striped Bass in the Tar River, North Carolina

Spawning of striped bass in the Tar River was studied in 1975 and results were compared with a similar study done in 1965. Egg samples indicated a significant increase in spawning activity probably due in part to an increased population established by stocking. More favorable temperatures in 1975 also resulted in an extended period of peak spawning. The location of major spawning grounds based on egg samples was found to cover a 25 mile span of river between River Mile 60 and 85.
