2014 B.A.S.S. Nation Conservation Fund Award Recipient
The New Hampshire B.A.S.S. Nation received a $5,000 grant for its bass research project. This project involves radio tagging smallmouth and largemouth bass released into Little Swam Lake after tournaments. The movements of tagged fish will be monitored for 1½ years to determine the percentage of bass that will return to the locations where they are caught. Results from this project will be used to evaluate appropriate bass tournament rules and provide the public with continued opportunities to appreciate and best utilize their resource. To date, 33 fish (10 largemouth and 23 smallmouth) have been tagged. Periodic project updates can be found here.
