DNR completes Santee Cooper striped bass stocking

Stocking striper fingerlings

The stocking by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is intended to supplement natural reproduction that has historically maintained the Santee Cooper striped bass population. Hatchery personnel and management biologists have increased the number of stock locations around the system in order to facilitate survival.  In addition, the fingerling size at stocking has been increased, which should also help survival.
