Marty,
If this is a proposal to reduce predation on T&E species, why are only striped bass being targeted? Introduce invasive pisciverous fishes such as black bass, bluegill, crappie, all have the potential to prey on T&E species and/or compete for resources required by them. Unlike stripers which seasonally share habitat with the T&E species you list, these other fishes spend their entire lives in the delta and their cumulative members vastly out number striped bass.
Regards,
Ralph
