The goal of the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Coast Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan (FMP) is to: 'enhance and perpetuate black seas bass stocks and their habitat in Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, and throughout the Atlantic coast, so as to generate optimum long-term ecological, social and economic benefits from their commercial and recreational harvest and utilization over time.' The black sea bass stock supports important recreational and commercial fisheries along the Atlantic coast. Virginia and Maryland harvested approximately 34% of the total northeastern Atlantic Coast commercial landings (1983-1994) and 31% of the recreational landings (1983-1992). Over 84% of the commercial catch (1983-1994) and 79% of the recreational catch are harvested from the federal Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ, 3-200 miles offshore). Even though the majority of the black sea bass are harvested from federal waters, there is a significant coastal fishery. The Chesapeake Bay serves as a vital nursery and feeding ground for young black sea bass.
