Division of Fish and Wildlife Marine Fisheries - Commercial and Recreational Saltwater Fishing Licensing Regulations
|Title||250||Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management|
|Part||2||Division of Fish and Wildlife Marine Fisheries - Commercial and Recreational Saltwater Fishing Licensing Regulations|
|Type of Filing||Technical Revision|
|Regulation Status||Inactive View Active Rule|
|Effective||12/02/2013 to 11/12/2014|
Regulation Authority :
Chapter 42-17.1, Section 20-1-4, Section 20-2.1 and Public Laws Chapter 02- 047, in accordance with Chapter 42-35 of the Rhode Island General Laws of 1956, as amended.
Purpose and Reason :
Technical Revision due to an error discovered regarding the paper logbook endorsement and electronic reporting. The adopted regulatory language did not take into account the license holders solely fishing onboard federal fishing vessels who are exempt from the state logbook requirement if they submit copies of their federal vessel trip reports (VTR) to the Division, creating an unintended duplicative reporting requirement.
