Do stripped bass migrate from salt water to fresh water?

    Stripped bass are native to the Atlantic coastline from North America; it runs through the St. lawrence river into the Gulf of Mexico to Louisiana. These fishes are anadromous fish that migrate between fresh to salt water. The spawning takes place in fresh water first. 

    When a stripped bass is born they spend most of their early years in a fresh water habitat. In their adult hood they spend most of their life in a salt water habitat.

    Yes, for breeding purposes. Mature striped bass typically live in the ocean, within five miles of the coast, but they typically travel to the nearby wetlands freshwater rivers – or slightly salty waters – to spawn. The young bass are raised in these waters, but within 1-2 months, they are fully grown and can head to the ocean waters.
