    Technically... wouldn't a Striper be a Saltwater fish also?

    Here is the story I know...
    They originally were found in the Atlantic Ocean(Virgina Saltwater State Fish) and would go into the freshwater rivers to spawn. I guess a lake on the east coast was dammed up and surprisingly the Striper population(that got stuck in there) did quite well adapting to the freshwater. They later farmed the striper and distributed them to freshwater throughout the US. In the DFG Sea Bass description page online it says they are a popular catch in the SF Bay under the Golden Gate Bridge.

    ...I would've said Salmon but I've never eaten a Kokanee Salmon.

    I've left off steelhead and salmon because they are really saltwater fish.

    Poll option was limited to 10, so it's more of a west coast poll. I've left off muskie, pike, walleye.
    there are pike in california

    Could Stripers be considered kinda a 'Invasive Species'
    I heard the love to eat small LMB, Trout ect.
    See the numbers of these stripers coming in at lakes ect.

    Are they hurting other populations ?
    How do they taste ? Never fished or eaten them?
    The poll results say good ?
