Reintroducing Striped Bass...to the Mississippi River!

"A small striped bass has a big job in the Pascagoula River: to go forth and multiply. Scientists with USM's Gulf Coast Research Lab, along with the DMR, have been working to release once plentiful striped bass back into its native Mississippi waters.

"This fish was here. It was an indigenous species up until the early '50s and then it went away. We're trying to get them back. We'd like to have them back...." [WLOX.com]
