Description: Striped Bass are a varying source of income for 131 Striped Bass commercial fishermen from Chatham, Massachusetts. For some it is the main source of income until the harvest limit of 238,000 lbs. is reached, then alternative fisheries must be sought. The purpose of this descriptive study was to investigate licensed Chatham Striped Bass fishermen beliefs about the sustainability of Striped Bass fish stock and attitudes toward regulations of the fisheries. No significant statistical differences in beliefs about sustainability or attitudes toward regulations could be discerned between those commercial fishermen who rely on Striped Bass as their primary source of income and those who don't. Chatham commercial Striped Bass fishermen are generally positive in their beliefs about the sustainability of the bass and attitudes toward regulations, but believe that harvest allotments could be increased and that greater coordination is needed with other states
