The Division of Marine Fisheries and the Massachusetts Environmental Trust created a license plate to support new programs to research, protect, and preserve striped bass populations. This will help ensure that future generations of anglers have the “opportunity to experience the unmatched thrill of fishing for this iconic species.”

The Striped Bass Conservation license plate is part of the MET environmental license plates series of specialty plates created exclusively for the benefit of the environment. Cape Cod artist Janet Biondi created the custom image for the plate that depicts a striped bass in pursuit of alewives, one of its favorite forage species.

To purchase your Striped Bass specialty plate, visit the Registry of Motor Vehicles for instructions on how to order a specialty plate online or in person.

• Total first-time cost of your Environmental Specialty Plates: $100
• Renewal Fee: $100 every two years ($40 is tax-deductible)
