The purpose of this report is to (1) summarize current knowledge on striped bass life history and environmental requirements, (2) evaluate the potential effects of alterations in the physical configuration of the C&D Canal and approach channels, (3) conduct a preliminary assessmnt of the degree to which changes in hydrology, turbidity and salinity in the Upper Bay will affect striped bass migratory patterns, feeding success, reproduction, early life stage survival, and recruitment, and (4) identify areas where data are lacking and develop recommendations for future striped bass studies needed to fully assess potential impacts.
