Wildlife officials have concerns about Virginia's striped bass population

Concerns about Virginia's striped bass population could scuttle the fishing season for larger-sized fish in parts of the state.

Striped bass are also known as rockfish.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that the season is set to begin later this month.

But there are indications that the population of the fish is declining.

That has raised concerns that further catches could have a long-term effect on its ability to survive.
