Regulation Authority :

Title 20, Chapters 42-17.1, 42-17.6, and 42-17.7, and in accordance with Chapter 42-35-18(b)(5), Administrative Procedures Act of the Rhode Island General Laws of 1956, as amended.

Purpose and Reason :

Technical Revision regarding harvest of horseshoe crabs. Regulations filed as a result of public hearing held November 14, 2016 were inaccurate in one instance involving compliance requirements for the return of horseshoe crabs bled in the bio-medical industry. The Director decision based on recommendation from RIMFR placed compliance on dealers and not harvesters; regulations currently maintain compliance with the harvester. This was an oversight when filing the regulations
