Striper Striped Bass Morone saxatilus

Stripers are fishes of the Atlantic Ocean, but they can and do adapt to freshwater environments and are capable of reproducing successfully in freshwater.  They have a streamlined, silver body with longitudinal dark stripes running from behind the head to the base of the tail.  Stripers can grow to six feet long and over a hundred pounds.

Stripers can be crossed with white bass in a hatchery; the resulting fish are called wipers, hybrid stripers, or sunshine bass. Wipers are fast-growing and aggressive. They can be distinguished from stripers by their stouter body shape, broken lines, and the presence of two tooth patches on the tongue.
