Title 250 Department of Environmental Management
Chapter 90 Marine Fisheries
Subchapter 00 N/A
Part 4 Shellfish
Type of Filing Direct Final Amendment
Regulation Status Active
Effective 07/03/2022

Regulation Authority:

R.I. Gen. Laws Title 20
R.I. Gen. Laws Chapters 42.17.1
and 42-17.7
and in accordance with R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 42-35
Administrative Procedures Act.

Purpose and Reason:

1.      Sections 4.11.1(C)(1)(a) and 4.12.1(D)(6)(a):  Inclusion of the new “Standard” commercial fishing license type consistent with recent amendments to Part 2 of this subchapter to identify shellfish possession limits for these license types. Effective January 1, 2023, Principal Effort Licenses (PEL) and Commercial Fishing Licenses (CFL) will no longer be issued consistent with recent amendments to Part 2 of this subchapter.  The rule will then be amended again after this date to remove these license types.

2.      Other minor clarifications.
