3.      Removal of terms “designated temperature control area”, “medical incapacitation”, and “qualifying period” as terms are not currently found or used in marine fisheries (i.e., Chapter 90 – Marine Fisheries) regulations.

4.      Addition of term “recreational fishing” consistent with statute.

5.      There is no net effect or actual change to the rules resulting from this amendment.
