Egg Collection; Temporary Change to Fishing Regulations
[38 Pa.B. 3875]
[Saturday, July 12, 2008]
The Executive Director of the Fish and Boat Commission (Commission), acting under the authority of 58 Pa. Code § 65.25 (relating to temporary changes to fishing regulations), has taken immediate action to make it unlawful to take eggs from a fish taken from waters of this Commonwealth outside the Lake Erie watershed or to possess these eggs or use them as bait. Eggs taken from lawfully harvested fish from the Lake Erie watershed may be possessed and used as bait in the Lake Erie watershed only. This action does not prohibit the possession of eggs contained within a lawfully harvested fish that is possessed for the purpose of human consumption.
The Executive Director has found that this action is necessary and appropriate for the protection, preservation and management of fish. This temporary modification will go into effect immediately and will remain in effect until January 1, 2009, unless the Commission, by appropriate action, adopts the new regulation. The Commission, under a separate notice of proposed rulemaking, will seek public comments on permanent changes to the Commission's fishing regulations.
