We're trying to cover a lot of ground in this series, and boil down some very complex situations and a lot of history into relatively short episodes, so several times we refer to in-depth data and information that we can't necessarily put on the the screen all at once. In the interest of making as much information as possible available to as many people as possible, we created this information bank of resources regarding the Chesapeake striped bass fishery and its history. This is by no means a complete collection of information, but if you heard us refer to something during the series and want to research the details, one or more of these documents should help.
