January 14, 2020 MarineFisheries Advisory | Striped Bass License Plates in Production! | DMF no longer accepting applications
Are you interested in having a Striped Bass license plate?
After a 6-month campaign, orders for the new striped bass license plate have exceeded the 750-minimum threshold to enter production. Expectations are that it will take an additional 6 to 8 months to manufacture and distribute the plates to the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). Once ready, applicants will be contacted by the RMV and instructed to go to their chosen RMV office to pick-up their pre-ordered license plate. The applicant’s $40 payment will be credited towards the purchase price of the new plate.
At this time, no new applications are being accepted at DMF. Any that are sent will be returned. By fall of 2020, any Massachusetts motorist will be able to obtain this conservation-inspired plate directly through the RMV.
The Striped Bass Conservation Plate is the fourth sponsored by the MA Environmental Trust. Funds generated from its sale are dedicated to striped bass studies, fish passage improvement projects, and angler education.
