discretion, where a discretion is vested. However, under no circum- 
stances, and in no particular case shall they, or any of them, be construed 
as a limitation or restriction upon the exercise of any discretion, where 
such exists; nor shall they in any event be construed to deprive the com- 
mission of any exercise of powers, duties and jurisdiction conferred by 
law. 

Except for rules or regulations adopted pursuant to provisions of Sec- 
tions 200 to 221 , inclusive, of the Fish and Game Code, the commission 
may suspend or modify these rules, in whole or in part, upon good cause 
shown or when in the discretion of the commission the particular facts or

** Amendment to foreword supplied by Fish and Game Commission on May 15, 
1980. 



Subdivision 1. Fish, Amphibians and 
Reptiles 

Foreword 
1-19-74 

In Register 74, No. 3, major substantive changes have been made to 
former Sections 1.05 through 98.8 of Part 1, Division 1, Title 14, dealing 
with sport fishing regulations of the commission. Previous Chapters 1, 
2, and 3 of Part 1, which constituted the aforementioned sections, have 
been repealed and replaced with Chapters 1 through 5. The former Chap- 
ter 4, concerning commercial fish, can now be found as Chapter 6. For- 
mer Chapter 5, concerning capture, transportation, possession and sale 
of live freshwater fish for bait for profit, can now be found as Chapter 7, 
and former Chapter 6, containing miscellaneous regulations, can now be 
found as Chapter 8. 

The new sport fishing regulations cannot directly be compared with 
the previous regulations on a section-by-section basis. In the new format 
the regulations are broken into Chapter 1 , General Provisions and Defini- 
tions; Chapter 2, Statewide Regulations for Fishing and Frogging in In- 
land Waters; Chapter 3, Inland Water Fishing; Chapter 4, Ocean Fishing; 
and Chapter 5, Reptiles and Amphibians. 

The basic objective in the new sport fishing regulations format is to di- 
vide the state into eight sport fishing districts, each containing certain 
common characteristics for all waters within it. Consequently, one 
should now first determine the sport fishing district containing the water 



of interest, and look within that district's regulations for general seasons, 
bag limits and methods of take applicable to that district. Review should 
then be made of the special regulafions contained in that district for any 
exceptions which may apply. Chapters 1 and 2 contain certain provi- 
sions, definiuons and regulafions for fishing and frogging in the inland 
waters which are applicable to all districts other than the Ocean and San 
Francisco Bay District.

§ 1.74. Sport Fishing Report Card and Tagging 
Requirements. 

(a) Purpose. These regulations address potential concern for overfish- 
ing and alack of recreational fishing effort and catch information in some 



or all areas where the fishery operates. Many of these species are of high 
commercial value, and therefore, additional enforcement mechanisms 
are needed to improve compliance with existing bag limits and other reg- 
ulations, and to reduce the potential for poaching. 

(b) Species and Location Requirements. Individuals fishing for or tak- 
ing the following species are subject to report card requirements in the 
following locations described below: 

( 1 ) Salmon, in the Klamath-Trinity River System only. The Klamath- 
Trinity River System is defined as the anadromous waters of the Klamath 
River and Trinity River basins. Anadromous waters are defined in Sec- 
tion 1.04. 

(2) Steelhead trout, in all anadromous waters where take is authorized. 

(3) White sturgeon, in all areas where take is authorized. Tagging of 
retained individual sturgeon is also required. 

(4) Red abalone, in all areas where take is authorized. Tagging of re- 
tained individual abalone is also required 

(5) California spiny lobster, in all areas where take is authorized. 

(c) General Report Card Requirements. 

(!) Any person fishing for or taking any of the species identified in this 
Section shall have in their possession a non-transferable report card is- 
sued by the department for the particular species. See special exemption 
regarding possession of report cards for lobster divers in Section 29.91 . 

(2) Notwithstanding other statutes and regulations that may exempt 
sport fishing license requirements, non-transferable report cards are re- 
quired for any person fishing for or taking the species identified above. 
All cardholders shall adhere to all reporting and tagging requirements de- 
fined in this Section and Sections 5.79, 5.87, 5.88, 27.92. 29.16, and 
29.91 regardless of whether a sport fishing license requirement applies. 
This provision applies to all of the following persons: 

(A) Any person who is under 16 years of age 

(B) Any person who is fishing from a public pier 

(C) Any person who is fishing on free fishing days 

(D) Any person who holds a lifetime fishing license

report card number shall be entered in the designated space provided on 
the back of the individual's sport fishing license, and the sport fishing li- 
cense number shall be entered on the report card in the appropriate space. 

(C) Acquisition of Klamath-Trinity Salmon Report Cards, Steelhead 
Report and Restoration Cards and Spiny Lobster Report Cards — If the 
cardholder is required to have a sport fishing license, both the name of 
the report card and the number shall be entered in the blank area on the 
back of the individual's sport fishing license, and the sport fishing license 
number shall be entered on the report card in the appropriate space. 

(D) If the cardholder wishes to purchase another fishing license after 
their one, two, or ten-day sport fishing license has expired the cardholder 
need not purchase a second report card for any species, so long as the 
cardholder still possesses the report card valid for the calendar year. At 
the time of purchase of the subsequent license, the additional sport fish- 
ing license number shall be entered in the appropriate space on the report 
card. If there is a space provided for the particular card on the sport fish-

OCEAN WATERS WITH RESTRICTED FISHING 

§ 27.20. Groundfish Management Areas, Seasons, Depths, 
Exceptions, and Fishery Closure/Rule Change 
Process Described. 

Regulations that follow in secdons 27.25 through 27.50 define fishing 
seasons and depth constraints that are effecdve within each Groundfish 
Management Area. These sections apply to take and possession of all 90 
species of federally-managed groundfish as defined in Section 1.91. 
(These species include but are not limited to rockfish, cabezon, lingcod, 
California scorpionfish, kelp greenling, and some species of sharks, 
skates and flatfish). Special closures and excepdons to these regulations 
are also specified. All reguladons of sections 27.25 through 27.50 also 
apply for California sheephead, ocean whitefish, and all greenlings of the 
genus Hexagraininos, which are state-managed species known to 
associate with federal groundfish. 

(a) Depth Constraints: A depth constraint means that during the open 
season, the aforementioned species may only be taken or possessed in 
water depths shallower than the specified general depth contour lines, or 
altemadvely, in waters shoreward of lines approximadng a particular 
depth contour, defined by connecdng the appropriate set of waypoints 
adopted in Federal regulations (50 CFR Part 660, Subpart G). 

(b) Open Season — Take, Possession and Transit: During any open 
season in any Groundfish Management Area, in waters deeper than 
where fishing is authorized, it is unlawful to take or possess the afore- 
mendoned species unless a special exception is provided. However, this 
reguladon does not apply in cases where these species are possessed 
aboard vessels in transit with no fishing gear in the water. 

(c) Closed Season: During any closed season in any Groundfish Man- 
agement Area, it is unlawful to take or possess the aforementioned spe- 
cies regardless of depth, unless a special exception is provided. 

(d) California Rockfish Conservauon Area: Within any Groundfish 
Management Area, waters that are closed for these species during speci- 
fied times and/or closed in specified depths shall be known as the Califor- 
nia Rockfish Conservadon Area. See Section 27.51. 

(e) Fishery closure and/or rule change: When the department deter- 
mines, based on the best available scientific information, that an annual 
harvest limit [opdmum yield (OY), recreadonal harvest guideline, or rec- 
readonal harvest target] established in regulation by the NOAA Fisheries 
(Nadonal Marine Fisheries Service) for any species of federally-man- 
aged groundfish or aggregate group of federal groundfish species has 
been exceeded or is projected to be exceeded prior to the end of the year 
or that catches are less than predicted, the following rule changes may oc- 
cur: 

(1) The department may modify the seasons and/or depth constraints 
for any species of federally-managed groundfish or aggregate group of 
federal groundfish species, CaUfomia sheephead, ocean whitefish, and 
all greenlings of the genus Hexagrammos. Season and/or depth modifi- 
cations may differ by Groundfish Management Area, mode of fishing, or 
gear udlized. 

(2) The department may adjust exisdng bag or sub-bag limits or estab- 
lish addidonal bag or sub-bag limits as needed for any species of federal- 
ly-managed groundfish or aggregate group of federal groundfish spe-

cies, California sheephead, ocean whitefish, and all greenlings of the 
genus Hexagrammos. Bag limits may differ by Groundfish Management 
Area, time of year, mode of fishing, or gear utilized. 

(3) The department may adjust existing size limits or establish addi- 
tional size limits as needed for any species of federally-managed ground- 
fish or aggregate group of federal groundfish species, California shee- 
phead, ocean whitefish, and all greenlings of the genus Hexagrammos. 
Size limits may differ by Groundfish Management Area, time of year, 
mode of fishing, or gear utilized. 

(f) Notice of closure and/or mle change: The department shall give the 
public and the National Marine Fisheries Service no less than J calendar 
days' notice of any fishery closure or rule change implemented pursuant 
to this Section via a department news release. Anglers and divers are ad- 
vised to check the current rules before fishing. The latest fishing rules 
may be found on the department's website at: www.dfg.ca.gov/ marine/, 
or by calling (83 J ) 649-2801 for recorded information, or by contacting

§ 27.51. California Rockfish Conservation Area. 

California Rockfish Conservation Area (CRCA) means the ocean wa- 
ters that are closed to recreational groundfish fishing at specified times, 
or closed in specified depths or areas. CRCAs serve to minimize interac- 
tion with particular species of overfished groundfish that cannot be selec- 
tively avoided and thus must be protected from overharvest by closing 
times, depths or areas to recreational fishing for all federally-managed 
groundfish and associated species (limited to California sheephead, 
greenlings of the genus Hexagrammos, and ocean whitefish) managed by 
California. See Section 27.20. 

(a) In the CRCA, take and possession is prohibited for all 90 species 
of federally-managed groundfish as defined in Section 1.91. These spe- 
cies include but are not limited to rockfish, cabezon, lingcod, California 
scorpionfish, kelp greenling, and some species of sharks, skates and flat- 
fish. Take and possession of California sheephead, ocean whitefish, and 
all greenlings of the genus Hexagrammos, which are state-managed spe- 
cies known to associate with federal groundfish, is also prohibited. 

(b) This regulation does not apply in cases where these species are pos- 
sessed aboard vessels in transit with no fishing gear in the water.

FIN FISH— MINIMUM SIZE LIMITS, BAG AND POSSESSION 
LIMITS AND SEASONS 

§ 27.60. Limit. 

(a) General. No more than 20 finfish in combination of all species with 
not more than 10 of any one species, may be taken or possessed by any 
one person except as otherwise provided or as defined in subsection (c) 
below or in Section 1 95. See sections 27.70 through 28.62 for special bag 
limits, minimum size hmits and poundage restrictions for certain species 
that apply in addition to the general bag limit. 



(b) There is no limit on the following species: anchovy, grunion, jack- 
smelt, topsmelt. Pacific butterfish (pompano), queenfish, sanddabs, 
skipjack, jack mackerel. Pacific mackerel, Pacific staghorn sculpin, 
round herring. Pacific herring. Pacific sardine, petrale sole and starry 
flounder. 

(c) Boat limit. When two or more persons that are licensed or other- 
wise authorized to sport fish in ocean waters off California or in the San 
Francisco Bay District, defined in Section 27.00, are angling for finfish 
aboard a vessel in these waters, fishing by all authorized persons aboard 
may condnue until boat limits of finfish are taken and possessed aboard 
the vessel as authorized under this section or Section 195, Title 14, CCR. 

(1) The authorizafion for boat limits aboard a vessel does not apply to 
fishing trips originating in California where fish are taken in other juris- 
dictions. 

(2) A boat limit for a species or species group is the number of persons 
aboard a vessel that are licensed or otherwise authorized to sport fish in 
ocean waters off California, or in waters of the San Francisco Bay Dis- 
trict, (see special conditions of Section 195, Title 14, CCR, applicable to 
operator and crew members of vessels licensed pursuant to Fish and 
Game Code 7920) multiplied by the individual daily bag limit authorized 
for a species or species group in those waters. With the exception of spe- 
cies listed in subsection (b) above, the total fish aboard a boat may not 
exceed the aggregate per-person daily bag limit of 20-finfish in com- 
bination of all species times the number of anglers licensed or otherwise 
authorized to sport fish aboard the vessel. It is unlawful to exceed the boat 
hmit at any fime. 

(3) All persons aboard a vessel may be cited where violations involv- 
ing boat limits are found, including, but not limited to the following 
violations: 

(A) Over limits 

(B) Possession of prohibited species 

(C) Violation of size limits 

(D) Fish taken out of season or in closed areas. 

(4) Upon completion of a fishing trip aboard a vessel, each licensed 
angler or person otherwise authorized to sport fish may not possess more 
than the individual daily bag and possession limits. For purposes of this 
section, a trip is completed at the time a person disembarks from a vessel 
and individual possession limits apply. Special boat limit provisions ap- 
ply to persons fishing aboard commercial passenger fishing vessels re- 
porting pursuant to SecUon 195, Title 14, CCR. 

(5) Species for which no daily bag limit exists are not counted as part 
of a boat limit. 

(6) Boat limits are not authorized for sturgeon fishing and shall not ap- 
ply to the take, possession or retention of sturgeon.

Sturgeon Fishing Report Card in their possession while fishing for or tak- 
ing sturgeon. Anglers must complete and return the card pursuant to reg- 
ulations in this Section and in Section 1.74. 

(b) Tagging and Recording Requirements for Retained Fish. A Stur- 
geon Fishing Report Card includes detachable tags that shall be used to 
tag any white sturgeon that is taken and retained in the sport fishery. Any 
white sturgeon possessed by any person shall be tagged. 

(1) Upon taking and retaining a white sturgeon, the cardholder shall 
immediately record the following information: 

(A) The month, day, fishing location and length of the fish shall be re- 
corded in the appropriate spaces on the tag. Tags shall be used in sequen- 
tial order. 

(B) The month, day, fishing locaUon and length of the fish shall be re- 
corded in the appropriate spaces on the Sturgeon Fishing Report Card 
which corresponds to the number on the tag. 

(2) Immediately after recording the information above, the cardholder 
shall remove and completely detach the tag from the card and affix it to 
the white sturgeon. Cardholders shall not wait until completion of fishing 
activity to tag any white sturgeon in possession. 

(3) The tag shall be securely fastened to the fish. To affix the tag, a "zip 
tie", string, line or other suitable material shall be passed through the tag 
at the location specified on the sturgeon tag and attached to the fish. 

(4) Tags shall not be removed from the report card until immediately 
prior to affixing to a white sturgeon. Any tags detached from the report 
card and not affixed to a white sturgeon shall be considered used and 
therefore invalid. No person shall possess any used or otherwise invalid 
sturgeon tags. 

(5) Records of Prior Activity. All tags must be accounted for at all 
times by entry of a record on the Sturgeon Fishing Report Card corre- 
sponding to all tags that are not in possession. Any tag that was lost or 
destroyed shall be recorded as such on the corresponding line on the Stur- 
geon Fishing Report Card. 

(c) Reporting Requirements for Released Fish. 

( 1 ) Whenever the cardholder catches and releases a sturgeon , the card- 
holder shall immediately record the month, day, location code, and spe- 
cies of sturgeon. 

(2) If all lines in the "sturgeon released" field of the report card are 
filled, any additional sturgeon caught and released need not be recorded 
on the card. 

(d) Sturgeon tags must be left affixed to the fish in place, including 
while stored at a residence or non-transient location, until the fish is pro- 
cessed for immediate consumption. 

(e) The annual fee for the Sturgeon Fishing Report Card is specified 
in Section 701, Title 14, CCR.

FIN FISH— GEAR RESTRICTIONS 

§ 28.65. General. 

Except as provided in this article, fin fish may be taken only on hook 



and line or by hand. Any number of hooks and lines may be used in all 
ocean waters and bays except: 

(a) San Francisco and San Pablo bays between the Golden Gate Bridge 
and the west Carquinez Bridge, where only one line with not more than 
three hooks may be used. 

(b) On public piers, no person shall use more than two rods and lines, 
two hand lines, or two nets, traps or other appliances used to take crabs. 

(c) When rockfish (genus Sebastes) or lingcod (Ophiodon elongatus) 
are aboard or in possession, where only one line with not more than two 
hooks may be used pursuant to sections 28.55 or 28.27, respectively. 

(d) No gaff hook shall be used to take or assist in landing any fin fish 
shorter than the minimum size limit. For the purpose of this section a gaff 
hook is any hook with or without a handle used to assist in landing fish 
or to take fish in such a manner that the fish does not take the hook volun- 
tarily in its mouth. No person shall take fin fish from any boat or other 
floating device in ocean waters without having a landing net in posses- 
sion or available for immediate use to assist in landing undersize fish of 
species having minimum size limits; the opening of any such landing net 
shall be not less than eighteen inches in diameter. 

(e) North of Point Conception (34°27 ' 00" N. lat.), where only one 
rod and line may be used by each angler fishing for salmon, or fishing 
from any boat or floating device with salmon on board. 

(f) Mousetrap gear prohibited: It is unlawful to use, assist in using, or 
to possess aboard any vessel, hook-and-line gear commonly termed 
"mouse traps" constructed of a hook(s) or lure(s), attached to one end of 
a line that is attached to a float, or floats at the other end, and that when 
fished, is not attached directly to a person or vessel. Possession of such 
gear aboard a vessel shall be prima facie evidence that the gear is being 
used in violation of this regulation. 

(g) North of Point Concepfion to Horse Mountain, Section 27.80(a)(3) 
applies to each angler fishing for salmon or fishing from any boat or float- 
ing device with salmon on board.

§ 29.16. Abalone Report Card and Tagging Requirements 
(FG 2915, See Section 701). 

(a) Abalone Report Card Required. All individuals including divers 
must have an Abalone Report Card in their immediate possession while 
fishing for or taking red abalone. Individuals must complete and return 
the card pursuant to regulations in this Section and in Section 1.74. 

(b) Tagging Requirements. An Abalone Report Card includes detach- 
able tags that shall be used to tag any abalone that is taken and retained 
in the sport fishery. Any red abalone possessed by any person shall be 
tagged. 

(1) Cardholders shall tag any red abalone either immediately upon ex- 
iting the water or immediately upon boarding a vessel, whichever occurs 
first. For the purposes of this section a vessel is defined as any watercraft 
used or capable of being used as a means of transportation on water (ref- 
erence Section 9840(a) CVC). Cardholders shall not wait to return to 
their vehicle, beach site or other location to tag any abalone in possession. 
EXCEPTION: Cardholders who dive from a non-motorized vessel such as a kayak 
that is in the water may wait until immediately after disembarking from the non- 
motorized vessel to tag and record any abalone in possession, but shall not transfer 
any abalone from his or her immediate possession unless they are first tagged and 
recorded on the report card. 

(2) The cardholder shall fill in the month, day, time of catch, and fish- 
ing location on the abalone tag, remove and completely detach the tag 
from the card, and affix it to the shell of the abalone.

(3) The tag shall be securely fastened to the shell of the abalone. To 
affix the tag, a "zip tie", string, line or other suitable material shall be 
passed through a siphon hole on the abalone shell and through the tag at 
the location specified on the abalone tag. 

(4) Tags shall be used in sequential order, and shall not be removed 
from the report card until immediately prior to affixing to an abalone. 
Any tags detached from the report card and not affixed to an abalone shall 
be considered used and therefore invalid. 

(5) No person shall possess any used or otherwise invalid abalone tags 
not attached to an abalone shell. 

(c) Reporting Requirements. Immediately upon tagging all abalone in 
possession, the cardholder shall record the month, day, time of catch, and 
fishing location in the appropriate spaces on the numbered line on the 
Abalone Report Card which corresponds to the number on the tag at- 
tached to the abalone. 

(d) Records of Prior Activity. All tags must be accounted for at all 
times by entry of a record on the Abalone Report Card corresponding to 
all tags that are not in possession. Any tag that was lost or destroyed shall 
be recorded as such on the corresponding line on the Abalone Report 
Card. Any tag that was inadvertently removed and is still in possession 
shall be recorded as void on both the tag and the corresponding line on 
the Abalone Report Card. 

(e) Abalone tags must be left affixed to the shell, including while 
stored at a residence or non-transient location, until the abalone is pro- 
cessed for immediate consumption. 

(0 The annual fee for the Abalone Report Card is specified in Section 
7149.8 of the Fish and Game Code.

§ 50.03. Framework Review Processes. 

(a) Two processes for taking management action are available to im- 
plement routine annual changes in management of fish stocks and fish- 
eries within the Framework Review Process. 

(1) Rulemaking Action: The commission may conduct a rulemaking 
action pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act including holding 
at least two or more cominission meetings to hear, consider and approve 
measures affecting any aspect of management and fisheries, including 
direct allocation of a catch quota or an optimum yield, with adoption of 
regulations reflecting the commission's action.

percent or greater from the prior five-year average of landings, a 20 per- 
cent decline occurs in the number offish and average size offish (round 
weight) for the same two consecutive years for white seabass caught in 
the sport fishery as determined based on best available data, and recruit- 
ment indices for juvenile white seabass decline each year by 30 percent

tives, criteria, and procedures of the White Seabass Fishery Management 
Plan and other applicable laws and regulations, including the points of 
concern, socioeconomic, and framework review processes. 

(b) The director may appoint a White Seabass Scientific and Constitu- 
ent Advisory Panel (WSSCAP) to assist the department and commission 
with review of white seabass fishery assessments, management propos- 
als, and plan amendments. Membership on the WSSCAP should be re- 
served for those knowledgeable in the principals of fisheries science, in- 
cluding stock assessment, and/or those interested in, and involved with, 
white seabass resource and fisheries. The director may by regulation de- 
termine the terms and conditions of membership on the WSSCAP.

ducted annually utilizing best available data, but at a minimum, the 
collection and review of reported catches. The department will provide 
management recommendations to the commission annually, and in-sea- 
son if needed, based on criteria to be developed by the department's 
White Seabass Management Team in cooperation with the White Sea- 
bass Scientific and Constituent Advisory Panel, for approval by the com- 
mission by regulation. 

(d) When acting to adjust management of a species within a fishery 
management unit based on non-biological and socioeconomic issues, 
the commission will follow the process specified in the fishery manage- 
ment plan and Section 50.03. 

(e) Annual specifications and management measures are generally de- 
veloped in the fall and considered and adopted at two commission meet- 
ings held during the period from November through April depending on 
the timing and complexity of the issues. However, management mea- 
sures and actions may be developed, considered, adopted, and imple- 
mented at any time of year according to the criteria and procedures of the

proved by the commission, and, with regulafions of the Department of 
Commerce for nearshore groundfish (50 CFR, Part 660) unril transfer of 
fishery management authority, or other Federal authorization for alloca- 
fion by the state, is attained for these species. 

(b) The commission will consider the following factors during a 
change in allocafion: 

(1) present versus historical participafion in the fishery 

(2) the economics of the fisheries 

(3) local community impacts 

(4) product quality and flow to the consumer 

(5) gear conflicts 

(6) non-consumpfive uses 

(7) fishing efficiency, and 

(8) recreafional versus commercial fishery factors. 

(c) Allocation by the state of a commission authorized TAC for near- 
shore fish stock will be based on the use of historical fishery information 
applied regionally, with consfituent involvement, and based on a careful 
review of recreational and commercial landings information, and 
adopted in compliance with the Administrafive Procedure Act. 

(d) Until regional management is phased-in, and regional fishery in- 
formafion required to implement the allocafion methodology under sub- 
division (c) is available, allocafion of state managed nearshore fish stocks 
will be based on the currently used rafio of recreational to commercial 
take for a species during the periods 1983 through 1989, and 1993 
through 1999.

§53.01. Definitions. 

(a) Brail gear, dip nets or scoop nets means any net attached to a rigid 
frame operated by hand or mechanical device deployed from the vessel 
to scoop fish or invertebrates. 

(b) Daily trip limit means a routine management measure which may 
be used to limit take of squid on a per-vessel basis within a calendar day. 

(c) Drum seine means a purse seine net which is stored, deployed and 
retrieved with the aid of a mechanized drum (reel) mounted on the stem

fore being taken in the fishery. 

(e) Egg escapement method means a management tool which may be 
used to determine whether the fleet is fishing above or below a predeter- 
mined sustainable level of exploitation. The method requires establish- 
ing a threshold value to ensure that an adequate number of eggs are de- 
posited prior to harvest. 

(f) Fishing year or fishing season under the Market Squid FMP means 
the period April 1 though March 31. 

(g) Fishery Control Rules means specific management strategies such 
as seasonal catch limits, daily trip limits, area closures, time closures, and 
sustainable levels of egg escapement which provide for a sustainable 
market squid fishery. 

(h) Fleet capacity goal means an optimal number of vessels where the 
number of vessels matches the available squid resource. 

(i) Forage means the role of market squid in the food chain as a critical 
source of food for higher predators, including birds, fish and marine 
mammals. 

(j) Lampara means a rectangular net constructed with graduated mesh 
sizes, a definite bunt (bag), and fitted with floats. It is laid out by the fish- 
ing vessel in a circle and closed at least partially on the bottom by pulling 
the leadline in advance of the float line. 

(k) Light boat means a vessel engaged in the commercial taking or at- 
tempting to take market squid which uses bright lights to aggregate squid 
for commercial purposes including live bait. 

(/) Market squid means Loligo opalescens.

Title 14 



Plan approved by the Commission on August 27, 2004, hereby incorpo- 
rated by reference. 

(n) National Marine Fisheries Service, NMFS or NOAA Fisheries 
means the federal fisheries management agency which is contained in the 
United States Department of Commerce. 

(0) Overfished is defined at Fish and Game Code Section 97.5, and in 
the Market Squid FMP also means a condition that may exist when either 
the egg escapement threshold is not met, or catches of squid exceed any 
specified allowable level. 

(p) Overfishing is defined at Fish and Game Code Section 98. and in 
the Market Squid FMP also may mean that harvests of squid are occur- 
ring at times when either the egg escapement threshold is not being met, 
or catches are exceeding specified allowable levels. These catches may 
not be sustainable. 

(q) PFMCor Council means the Pacific Fishery Management Council 
established pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation 
and Management Act. 

(r) Point of concern means one or more of the following conditions af- 
fecting market squid that, if found or are expected to exist, may trigger 
the application or adjustment of one or more management measures by 
the commission: 

(1) Catch is projected to significantly exceed the current seasonal 
catch limitation. 

(2) Any adverse or significant change in the biological characteristics 
of the market squid (age composition, size composition, age at maturity, 
or recruitment) is discovered. 

(3) An overfished condition exists or is imminent (defined as when the 
egg-escapement method threshold is not realized in two consecutive 
years). 

(4) Any adverse or significant change in the availability of market 
squid as forage or in the status of a dependent species is discovered. 

(5) An error in data or a change to an indicator of stock status is de- 
tected that requires adjustment to fishery control rules to ensure sustain- 
able resource management. 

(s) Points of concern process means a process authorizing the commis- 
sion to apply or adjust fishery management measures at any time during 
the year based on the confirmation of the existence of one or more re- 
source-based points of concern identified in a fishery management plan 
pursuant subsection 50.03(a), Title 14, CCR. 

(t) Purse seine means a rectangular net constructed with uniform mesh 
sizes, without a prominent bunt (bag), and fitted with floats. It is laid out 
with the end attached to a skiff while the deploying vessel encircles the

is closed on the bottom by pulling a purse line (draw string) threaded 
through rings along the leadline, preventing the catch from escaping. 

(u) Round haul vessels mean those that employ the use of lampara, 
purse seine, and drum seine net gear to commercially harvest squid. 

(v) Seasonal catch limitation means an amount of allowable catch 
which may be taken within a designated geographic area in a fishing sea- 
son, specified in short tons and excluding discard mortahty. The attain- 
ment (or expected attainment) of this limit will cause closure of the di- 
rected commercial fishery as specified in regulation. 

(w) Tons means short tons, and is the standard unit of weight for pur- 
poses of describing catches and limits for the market squid fishery, not- 
withstanding subsection 50.00(c), Title 14, CCR. 

(x) Vessel capacity means the gross registered tonnage, as Usted on a 
federal Coastal Pelagic Species permit or calculated from length, breadth 
and depth measurements provided on United States Coast Guard docu- 
mentation papers.

§ 53.03. Market Squid Fishery Management Plan (Market 
Squid FMP) Project. 

(a) The Department's Recommended Proposed Project in the Market 
Squid FMP involves a combination of limitations on total harvest, regu- 
lation on the use of squid fishing gear (including hghts), use of time clo- 
sures to allow for periods of uninterrupted spawning, restricted access 
and other Hmits on the commercial fleet capacity, mechanisms to allow 
for adequate squid escapement, and area closures designed to minimize 
impact to sensitive non-target species and habitat. These management 
measures described in the Market Squid FMP will be utilized in manag- 
ing the squid fishery toward meeting goals and objectives of the Market 
Squid FMP. 

(b) Other management measures as described in the Market Squid 
FMP, including but not limited to vessel trip hmits, squid replenishment 
areas, seasonal closures, and marine protected areas may be used as need- 
ed to achieve the goals and objectives of the Market Squid FMP. 

(c) A fishery management measure may be adopted by the commis- 
sion instead of, or in addition to, measures included in the adopted Mar- 
ket Squid FMP Project where specified in statute or state or federal regu- 
lation. 

(d) Consistent with the goals of the Restricted Access program, the 
Commission established a sixth permit class for Non-Transferable Mar- 
ket Squid Light Boat Permits in addition to the original five permit 
classes and an experimental permit class identified in the discussion of 
the program in the Market Squid Fishery Plan.

sold to a registered aquaculturist. 

(2) Crayfish taken under the authority of a live bait fish license shall 
be used only for bait purposes and shall not be sold, purchased or used 
for any other purpose. 

(e) Size Limit. 

(1 ) No live crayfish of the genus Pacifastacus less than three and five- 
eights inches (92mm) in length from tip of nose (acumen) to tip of tail 
(telson), measured in a straight line ventral side up, may be taken com- 
mercially, except an allowable percentage of unacceptable (dead or un- 
dersized) Pacifastacus in any load or lot shall not be more than 10% by 
number. 

(2) With the exception of the 10% allowable unacceptable crayfish, all 
other undersized Pacifastacus shall be returned unharmed to the waters 
from which taken. Such crayfish shall be sorted and returned immediate- 
ly following processing of any trap or trap line before pulling additional 
traps or before returning to any dock or landing. 

(3) The processing plants may not possess any cooked crayfish of the 
genus Pacifastacus which are less than three and one-half inches (89 
mm) in length from the tip of nose (acumen) to tip of tail (telson), mea- 
sured in a straight line ventral side up, except an allowable percentage of

limit fixed by this section, samples shall be taken from various portions 
of the load or lot and shall be measured and counted. The mean of the 
combined counts of all samples taken shall be used to determine the per- 
centage of unacceptable Pacifastacus in the load or lot. Samples shall be 
taken in containers of not less than one gallon size approximately full of 
Pacifastacus. At least three such samples shall be taken from any load or 
lot.

shall be vented at the bottom. The depth of crayfish in such container 
shall not exceed 13 inches. 

(k) All crayfish traps must be raised and processed at least once every 
72 hours. Traps not processed within this time limit shall be considered 
abandoned and shall be subject to seizure by department personnel. 

(/) Scientific and Educational Use. 

( 1 ) Each person who collects crayfish for a fee for scientific and educa- 
tional purposes shall have a commercial fishing license, and each boat 
used for this purpose shall be registered as a commercial fishing vessel.

§ 120. Prawn or Shrimp Trawling. 

The following are the regulations under which permits to use or pos- 
sess trawls for the taking of shrimp or prawns in ocean waters pursuant 
to section 8842 are to be granted: 

(a) Qualifications of Permittee. The apphcant must be the operator of 
a currently registered commercial fishing vessel. 

(b) Southern Pink Shrimp Trawl Permit. On and after April 1, 2001, 
any person using a trawl net to take, possess aboard a boat, or land pink 



shrimp for commercial purposes in ocean waters south of a line drawn 
due west of Point Conception shall have a southern pink shrimp trawl 
permit that has not been suspended or revoked. 

(c) Cost of Permit. See subsection 699(b) of these regulations for the 
fee for this permit. (NOTE: This fee shall be charged effective April 1 , 
i992.) 

(d) Permit Areas. The taking of pink shrimp north of a line drawn due 
west of Point Concepfion shall be subject to this section and Section 
1 20.01 , Title 14, CCR. Trawling for shrimp or prawns shall be permitted 
only in those waters of Fish and Game Districts 6, 7, 10, 1 7, 18, and 19, 
lying not less than three (3) nautical miles from the nearest point of land 
on the mainland shore, all offshore islands and the boundary fine of Dis- 
trict 19A, except that in waters lying between a line extending due west 
from False Cape and a Une extending due west from Pigeon Point, trawl- 
ing is allowed not less than two (2) nautical miles from the nearest point 
of land on the mainland shore. However, no trawhng shall be conducted 
in the cowcod closure areas defined in Secdon 150.06, Title 14, CCR. 

(e) Season. Pink shrimp may be taken April 1 through October 31. The 
taking of golden, spot and ridgeback prawns is provided for in Section 
120.3, Title 14, CCR. 

(f) Gear Specifications. 

(1) The net to be used for the capture of shrimp or prawns shall be an 
otter trawl or a beam trawl net. 

(2) The mesh of any webbing used on or with the beam or otter trawl 
shall not be less than 1 3/8 inches measured inside the knots. 

(3) An approved Bycatch Reduction Device (BRD) shall be used on 
all trawl nets used in the commercial pink shrimp trawl fishery and is de- 
scribed as one of the following: 

(A) The Nordmore Grate. The grate consists of a series of rigid or 
semi-rigid vertical bars that form a panel which guides finfish out of an 
escape hole located in the top of the net. The device may include a funnel 
used to concentrate catch near the bottom of the panel to facilitate sorting 
but is not a required component. An approved Nordmore Grate must 
meet the following criteria: 

1. The rigid or semi-rigid panel must completely cover some portion 
of the net in diagonal cross-section. 

2. None of the openings between the vertical bars of the panel may ex- 
ceed 2 inches. 

3. The escape hole, when spread open, must expose a hole at least 100 
square inches in surface area, which is the equivalent to removing 10-12 
meshes in a straight line. 

4. The escape hole must be forward of the panel and the farthest back 
point must end within four meshes of the point at which the rigid or semi- 
rigid panel connects to the main net at its farthest back point. 

(B) The Soft-Panel Excluder. This device uses a mesh panel to guide 
fish out of an escape hole located in the top of the net. An approved soft- 
panel BRD must satisfy the following criteria: 

1 . The panel meshes must be constmcted of net material with individu- 
al meshes no larger than 6 inches (stretch measure). 

2. The panel must completely cover some portion of the net in diagonal 
cross-section and partial panels are not allowed. 

3. The escape hole must, when spread open, expose a hole at least 100 
square inches in surface area, which is equivalent to cutting 10-12 
meshes in a straight hne. 

4. The escape hole must be positioned forward of the panel and end 
within four meshes of the point at which the panel connects to the main 
net at its farthest back point. 

(C) The Fisheye Excluder. This device functions as a simple forward 
facing escape hatch that is maintained by a rigid frame. An approved fish- 
eye BRD must meet the following criteria: 

1 . The escape hole must be forward facing so that finfish can swim to- 
wards the mouth of the net to exit through the fisheye. 

2. The device must be placed on the top of the codend, no further for- 
ward than 84 codend meshes, counted from the pursing rings. 

3. The escape hole must be no less than 6 inches in height and no less 
than 10 inches in width.

(4) A revocable experimental BRD permit may be issued by the De- 
partment's Marine Region Manager and used in lieu of an approved BRD 
under the following terms and conditions: 

(A) The experimental BRD meets minimum design criteria for ap- 
proved BRDs as determined by the Marine Region Manager. 

(B) The permitted vessel carries a Department-approved observer 
coverage during all times that the experimental BRD is used in lieu of an 
approved BRD to harvest pink shrimp. 

(C) The experimental BRD permit is valid for the duration of the im- 
pending or current pink shrimp season unless revoked. 

(5) Bycatch reduction devices shall not be modified in any way that 
interferes with their ability to allow fish to escape from the trawl, except 
for the purpose of testing the BRD to measure shrimp loss. Authorized 
testing of BRDs may be conducted as follows: 

(A) All testing must occur between 3:00 p:m. and 6:00 p.m. Pacific 
Time. 

(B) For vessels fishing two nets simultaneously (double-rigged 
boats), only one net may contain a disabled BRD (approved or exper- 
imental). 

(C) For vessels fishing only one net, the BRD may be disabled only 
between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time. 

(g) Limitations of Gear. 

(1 ) Nets used for the taking of shrimp or prawns under this regulation 
may be possessed on a boat in a permit area only when the shrimp or 
prawn trawling season is open in that area, except as provided in (6) be- 
low and except that for a period of seven (7) days following the close of 
the season, shrimp or prawn nets may be possessed on a boat for the pur- 
pose of cleaning, drying, or maintaining such nets, provided that the boat 
remains in port during the time the net(s) is aboard. No shrimp trawl net 
may be possessed on board a vessel in the commercial pink shrimp fish- 
ery that does not include an excluder device. All bycatch reduction de- 
vices and codends used for trawl fishing for pink shrimp must be readily 
accessible and made available for inspection at the request of a depart- 
ment official. 

(2) When any nets possessed under the terms of these regulations are 
in possession on any permittee's vessel, no other fishing nets may be pos- 
sessed on that vessel. 

(3) No web, the meshes of which are less than that prescribed in these 
regulations, may be possessed on any vessel which is operating under the 
provisions of a shrimp or prawn permit. 

(4) All fishing gear used under the provisions of this permit is subject 
to inspection and approval by the Department of Fish and Game at any 
time. 

(5) On request, any authorized representative of the Department of 
Fish and Game shall be permitted to travel on the permittee's boat to ob- 
serve shrimp or prawn trawling operations. 

(6) The department may issue revocable nontransferable permits to 
shrimp permittees for purpose of transporting shrimp or prawn nets in 
closed permit areas. The permit must include such information as the 
name of the vessel that will transport the net and a termination date that 
does not extend beyond the end of the season in progress. The permit 
shall be carried aboard the vessel upon which the net is being transported. 

(7) No shrimp trawl nets may be removed from the vessel participating 
in the pink shrimp trawl fishery prior to the offloading of pink shrimp. 

(h) Incidentally Caught Fish. Not more than 1,500 pounds, multiplied 
by the number of days of the fishing trip, of fish other than Pacific whit- 
ing, shortbelly rockfish, or arrowtooth flounder caught incidentally with 
shrimp or prawns may be possessed on any boat operating under a permit 
as provided in these regulations, except salmon may be taken and pos- 
sessed subject to sections 8210.2 to 8226, and 8230 to 8237, inclusive, 
of the Fish and Game Code. Spot prawns shall not be possessed or landed 
as incidental catch in the pink shrimp fishery. 

(i) Maximum Count per Pound. It is illegal for any vessel operating un- 
der a southern pink shrimp permit or a permit as provided in Section 
120.01, Title 14, CCR, to land pink shrimp having a count greater than 
160 shrimp per pound. 



(j) Records. Pursuant to section 190 ofthe.se regulations, each permit- 
tee shall complete and submit an accurate record of his fishing activities 
on a form (Shrimp/Prawn Trawl Log, DFG 120 (10/ 89), see Appendix 
A) provided by the department. 

(k) Conditions of Permit. The provisions of the Fish and Game Code 
of California relating to commercial fishing except as modified by the 
provisions of this permit shall be a condition of all permits to be fully per- 
formed by the holders thereof, their agents, servants, employees, or those 
acting under their direction and control. 

(/) Revocation of Permits. All permits may be revoked and canceled 
by the Fish and Game Commission without notice, upon the breach or 
violation of any fish and game law or regulation or any violation of the 
terms or condiUons of this permit by the holders thereof, their agents, ser- 
vants, employees or those acting under their direction and control. Per- 
mits so revoked and canceled may not be renewed for a period of one year 
from the date of revocation.

may be not more than five feet greater in overall length than the longest 
vessel on which the permittee made qualifying landings. The individual 
permittee is subject to the terms of permit renewal in Section 
120.01(d)(1). Any northern pink shrimp trawl individual permit not up- 
graded to a northern pink shrimp trawl vessel permit before April 1 , 2003

a replacement vessel owned by the permittee within two years of the per- 
mitted vessel being lost, stolen, or destroyed. The replacement vessel 
may be up to but not more than five feet greater in overall length than the 
original permitted vessel. The original length endorsement will remain 
on the permit. 

(2) A northern pink shrimp trawl vessel permit is otherwise transfer- 
able to another owner only if the vessel qualifying for the initial permit 
landed 90,000 pounds of pink shrimp by trawl north of Point Conception 
from April 1, 1994 to October 31, 1999. An individual permit, when up- 
graded to a vessel permit pursuant to Section 1 20.01 (d)(2), shall be other- 
wise transferable to another owner only if the fishermen qualifying for 
the initial permit landed 90,000 pounds of pink shrimp by trawl north of 
Point Conception from April 1, 1994 to October 31, 1999. 

(A) The transferable permit may not be transferred more than once ev-

permittee an heir may apply to the department to transfer that permit to 
him or her. The application for transfer shall be received by the depart- 
ment within two years of the death of the permittee. 

(4) Any northern pink shrimp trawl vessel permit may be temporarily 
transferred, for up to one year, to a different vessel, if the permitted vessel

(a) Permit Required. 

(1) Any person taking or assisting in the taking of sea urchins for com- 
mercial purposes shall have obtained a valid sea urchin permit and shall 
be in possession of said permit when engaged in such activities. A sea ur- 
chin diving permit is not required to operate or assist in operating a vessel 
used to take sea urchins, however, no person without a valid sea urchin 
diving permit shall engage in diving from a vessel from which sea urchins 
are being taken or possessed for commercial purposes, unless authorized 
by the department's marine region regional manager or his or her desig- 
nee for the purposes of sea urchin management or research. 

(2) To provide an economic incentive for cooperative sea urchin man- 
agement and research activity, and notwithstanding any other portion of 
this section, the department may authorize the holder of a valid sea urchin 
diving permit to harvest (take, possess, land and/or sell) red sea urchins 
during a closed season or in a closed area, subject to such restrictions re- 
garding date(s), location(s), time(s), size, poundage or other matters as 
specified by the department. Any data collected during such harvest ac- 
tivity shall be made available to the department. The form of this autho- 
rization shall be a letter from the department's marine region regional 



manager or his or her designee issued to the permittee and containing all 
conditions of use. 

(b) Classes of Permits. 

( 1 ) Sea Urchin Diving Permit. Sea urchin diving permits will be issued 
to licensed commercial fishermen 1 6 years of age or older who have qual- 
ified for permits pursuant to subsection (c). 

(2) Sea Urchin Crewmember Permit. Sea urchin crewmember permits 
will be issued to licensed commercial fishermen 16 years of age or older 
who do not qualify for sea urchin diving permits. 

(c) Permit Renewal. 

( 1) Applicants for renewal of sea urchin diving permits must have held 
a valid, unrevoked sea urchin diving permit in the immediately preceding 
permit year (April 1-March 31). 

(2) In 2008, applications for renewal of sea urchin diving permits shall 
be received by the department or, if mailed, postmarked no later than 
June 30. in 2009 and thereafter, applications for renewal of sea urchin 
diving permits shall be received by the department or, if mailed, post- 
marked no later than April 30. Late fees, late fee deadlines, and late re- 
newal appeal provisions are specified in Fish and Game Code Section 
7852.2. 

(d) Number of Permits. 

(1) All qualified prior sea urchin diving permittees shall be eligible to 
receive diving permits regardless of the number issued. 

(2) If the number of diving permits issued to prior permittees is more 
than 300, the total number of new sea urchin diving permits available for 
issuance shall be one-tenth the difference between the total number of 
sea urchin diving permits issued prior to August 1 of the current permit 
year and the total number of sea urchin permits issued during the immedi- 
ately preceding permit year. If the number of diving permits issued to 
prior permittees is less than 300, the number of new sea urchin diving per- 
mits to be issued shall be the difference between the number of diving 
permits issued to prior permittees and 300. If the number of permits is- 
sued to prior permittees is 300, no new sea urchin diving permits shall be 
available. 

(e) New Permittees: 

(1) Applications for the issuance of any new sea urchin diving permits 
that may become available each year shall be received by the department 
or, if mailed, postmarked no later than June 30. Applications shall be sub- 
mitted to the department's License and Revenue Branch office in Sacra- 
mento. If any new sea urchin diving permits are available for issuance, 
as provided in subsection (d)(2), they shall be issued to licensed commer- 
cial fishermen who held, for each of the two immediately preceding per- 
mit years, a valid sea urchin crewmember permit. 

(2) If there are more applicants for sea urchin diving permits than there 
are permits available, a drawing will be held to determine which appli- 
cants will be eligible to purchase permits. Any person who submits more 
than one application for a new sea urchin diving permit in any one permit 
year will be excluded from the drawing. Each applicant who meets the 
criteria in subsection (e)(1) shall be entered into the drawing once. In 
addition, each applicant shall be entered into the drawing one more time 
for each additional year, above the minimum required two years, that the 
applicant possessed a valid sea urchin crewmember permit. No applicant 
shall be entered more than five times for each drawing. The drawing will 
be held on the third Wednesday in August each year. Permits will be is- 
sued to successful applicants in the order drawn. Payment of the fee for 
the sea urchin diving permit must be received at the department's License 
and Revenue Branch office in Sacramento on or before September 25.

not to exceed 96 hours, trap marker buoys, and other trap and buoy identi- 
fication requirements. These statutes and regulations are defined in Fish 
and Game Code sections 9001, 9002, 9003, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9007, and 
9008, and sections 180, 180.2, 180.5, and 190, Title 14, CCR. 

(B) Trap Construction and Dimensional Requirements. 

1. Escape Ports. Every Tanner crab trap shall have at least three open- 
ings of at least 4.5 inches in diameter in the side or upper panels of the 
trap to allow for escapement of undersized crab. The 4.5-inch measure- 
ment of the opening shall be taken at its smallest inside diameter. The 
openings may be constructed with a rigid opening such as a ring or as part 
of a mesh panel. At the time of measurement, the trap shall be set upright 
as if it were in use. If the opening is non-rigid or contained within pliable 
mesh, the smallest inside diameter measurement shall be taken so that a 
rigid cylindrical measuring device 4.5 inches in its outside diameter and 
at least three inches in length shall be able to pass easily through the open- 
ing. 

2. Trap Dimensional Requirements. Tanner crab traps must not be 
more than 10 feet long and not more than 10 feet wide and not more than 
42 inches high, as measured by the greatest distance in each dimension. 

(C) Trap Destrucrion Devices. Traps utilized under authority of a Tan- 
ner Crab Trap Vessel Permit must contain a trap destruction device meet- 
ing the requirements for Tanner crab traps specified in Section 180.2, 
Title 14, CCR. 

(D) Prohibition on Pop-Ups. Timed buoy release mechanisms capable 
of submerging a buoy attached to a trap, commonly known as "pop-ups," 
shall not be used on buoy lines attached to Tanner crab traps, and shall 
not be possessed by any commercial vessel while taking, attempting to 
take, or possessing Tanner crabs. 

(E) Depth Requirement. Tanner crab traps shall only be placed or 
otherwise used in water depths greater than 300 fathoms. 

(F) Vessel Buoy Marking Requirement. In addition to the trap and 
buoy marking requirements specified in Fish and Game Code section 
9006 and 9007, every string of traps shrill be marked with a buoy on each 
end of the string that is marked with the vessel's commercial boat regis- 
tration number issued by the department pursuant to Fish and Game Code 
Section 7881. A vessel fishing under authority of a Tanner Crab Trap 
Vessel Permit may only take, possess aboard a vessel, transport, deliver, 
or land Tanner crab from traps marked with the vessel's own registration 
number. The vessel's registration number on each buoy shall be preceded 
by the letters "TC." The numbers and letters shall be in a color which con- 
trasts with the color of the buoy. A line thickness no less than 1/8 inch 
shall be used to create letters and numbers which shall be no less than two 
(2) inches in height and no less than one (1) inch in greatest width. The 
permit holder shall maintain the buoys so that the registration numbers 
and the letters "TC" are legible and easily determined. 

(G) Disturbing Traps Prohibited. It is unlawful to willfully or reckless- 
ly disturb, move or damage any trap or attachment thereof that belongs 
to another owner and that is marked with a vessel registration number and 
the letters "TC." However, a person aboard a permitted vessel may pull 
or raise a trap marked with a buoy bearing a vessel registration number 
and the letters "TC" other than his own, but must have written permission 
in his or her immediate possession from the permittee whose vessel regis- 
tration number is marked on the buoy. This subsection does not apply to 
employees of the department while engaged in the performance of offi- 
cial duties. Employees of the department may disclose the name, address, 
and registration number of Tanner Crab Trap Vessel permittees to repre-

Title 14 



sentatives of public safety agencies to assist in the return of traps and at- 
tachments to their proper owners. This subsection does not create any 
duty on any state or local agency to remove or move a trap, line, or buoy 
that may endanger the public safety and does not create any liability to 
Part 2 (commencing with Section 814) of Division 3.6 of Title 1 of the 
Government Code. 

(H) Trap and String Limits. No more than 480 traps may be submerged 
or otherwise used per permitted vessel. Not more than six strings with not 
more than 80 traps per string shall be submer^d or otherwise used. All 
traps must be fished on a string of traps. For purposes of this Section, 
"string" means individual traps that are connected by line or other means. 

(5) Processing at Sea. Vessels may process crabs at sea and land them 
in a condition other than whole pursuant to the requirements of this Sec- 
tion. 

(A) For purposes of this Section, the term "processing" shall not be 
equated to the term or activity of "Process fish" as defined in Fish and 
Game Code Section 8031. 

(B) If Tanner crab is not landed in the round, the whole-weight con- 
version factor that shall be applied is 1 .61 . At the time the landing receipt 
is completed pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 8043, the pro- 
cessed weight shall be recorded in the "Pounds" section and the con- 
verted whole weight, in pounds, shall be recorded in the space marked 
"Note Pad" on the landing receipt. 

(C) For purposes of landing tax payments as required and specified by 
Fish and Game Code sections 8041 and 8051, for Tanner crab landed in 
processed condition, lax payments shall be computed and paid based on 
the converted whole weight. 

(6) Cumulative Vessel Trip Limits. 

(A) A cumulative trip limit is the total number of pounds of Tanner 
crab that may be taken and retained, possessed, or landed by a vessel in 
a two-month period without a hmit on the number of landings or trips. 
The cumulative trip Hmit per vessel per designated two-month limit peri- 
od is 250,000 pounds of whole crab. For purposes of calculating catch 
against a cumulative vessel trip limit, all landings of processed crab shall 
be converted to the whole-weight equivalent as described in subsection 
(a)(5)(B). 

(B) Cumulative trip hmit periods start at 0001 hours local time, end at 
2400 hours local time, and are in two month periods as follows: 

1. January 1 through the last day of February, 

2. March 1 -April 30, 

3. May 1-June 30, 

4. July 1-August 31, 

5. September 1-October 31, 

6. November 1-December 31. 

(C) All landings made in a vessel's registration number hsted on land- 
ing receipts submitted to the department pursuant to Fish and Game Code 
Section 8043 count toward the cumulative trip limit for the two month 
period that corresponds to the date on the receipt. Such receipts must ac- 
curately record the weight of Tanner crab landed. 

(D) Copies of all landing receipts which document the catch of Tanner 
crab shall be kept onboard the fishing vessel throughout, and for 1 5 days 
following, each period for which cumulative landings by individual ves- 
sels are linnited. 

(E) When the seasonal catch limit defined in subsection (b) is reached 
and action to close the fishery is taken, cumulative trip limits defined in 
this subsection become inoperative. 

(7) Incidental Landings and Allowances. 

(A) No more than five percent of the total possessed or landed catch 
by weight may be comprised of invertebrates other than Tanner crab. All 
crab and other invertebrates taken in Tanner crab traps, except for crab 
of the genus Cancer (including but not limited to Dungeness crab and 
rock crab) may be landed and sold incidentally under authority of a Tan- 
ner Crab Trap Vessel Permit. 

(B) All finfish taken in Tanner crab traps, with the exception of sable- 
fish, shall immediately be returned to the water. Sablefish may be landed 
if authorized pursuant to Federal groundfish regulations. 



(C) No invertebrates or finfish taken in Taimer crab traps may be used 
as bait. 

(8) Observer Requirements and Cooperation with Observer Programs. 

(A) Each permittee is required to carry an observer onboard to gather 
biological, fishery and bycatch information during Tanner crab fishery 
operations according to the specifications defined in this subsection. The 
permittee shall contract with either a National Marine Fisheries Service 
(NMFS)-certified observer provider firm, or a private individual who is 
certified either as a NMFS observer or as a crab observer by the Alaska 
Department of Fish and Game. The Tanner Crab Trap Vessel permittee 
shall be liable for a violation of any terms or conditions of this subsection. 

1 . Prior to contracting, the permittee is required to acquire department 
approval of the selected provider firm or private individual. The depart- 
ment shall review the qualifications of the observer with whom the vessel

gion Regional Manager or his or her designee, and must be sought by 
phone at (562) 342-7108, and in writing to the department's office at 
4665 Lampson Avenue, Suite C, Los Alamitos, CA 90720. Requests for 
approval must be made at least 60 days prior to the planned commence- 
ment of fishing acdvity. At the time the request is made, the permittee 
must also notify the department of the anticipated start date of fishing ac- 
tivity. 

2. As a condition of the contract, the observer shall collect biological 
and fishery data as requested by the department. Data to be collected by 
the observer shall include vessel identification, date and time, informa- 
tion on catch, incidental take, sex ratio, size, maturity, condition and 
quality factors, weight, discards, gear specificafions, vessel position and 
depth, trap soak time, number of traps set and pulled, and a summary of 
the vessel's daily activities and interactions with other vessels or fisheries 
compiled in a daily observation report. As needed, the department may 
request the observer to provide additional information that is similar in 
scope and nature to the aforementioned items. The permittee is required 
to ensure that while aboard, the observer is gathering data at all times 
when the vessel is engaged in fishing activity. 

3. The department will provide all necessary sampling materials, 
equipment and a computer to the selected provider firm or individual for 
the observer's use aboard the vessel. The permittee shall ensure that the 
sampling materials, equipment and computer are returned to the depart- 
ment following completion of the observer's duties. Observer safety 
equipment needs and safety specifications shall be arranged by the per- 
mittee with the selected provider firm or private individual, and shall not 
be the responsibiUty of the department. 

4. The contract between the permittee and the selected provider firm 
or private individual shall specify that data collected aboard the vessel 
shall be the property of the department. 

5. The permittee shall ensure that all data collected or reported by the 
observer shall be delivered to the department office at 4665 Lampson 
Avenue, Suite C, Los Alamitos, CA 90720 on or before the 10th day of 
each month following the month to which the observer's records pertain. 
Observer records that are mailed shall be postmarked on or before the 
10th day of each month following the month to which the records pertain. 

6. The permittee shall ensure that the data and all reports and documen- 
tafion are collected by the observer on paper data sheets, entered into a 
computer provided by the department, and provided to the department in 
electronic format according to the submission procedures described in 
this subsection. Paper data sheets used onboard the vessel shall be in- 
cluded with the electronic data submitted to the department. 

(B) As a condition of a Tanner Crab Trap Vessel Permit, the permittee 
is required to have an observer onboard at the fime the vessel's fishing 
activity commences each fishing season, and during all fishing opera- 
tions that occur over the sixty consecutive days that follow. A vessel's 
fishing activity commences at the time that a trap is deployed for pur- 
poses of commercially harvesting Tanner crab. 

(C) All vessels and persons operating under authority of a Tanner Crab

§ 142. Fishermen and Fish Plants. 

(a) In order to prevent waste of fish, no person shall take or bring into 
any cannery, packing, preserving, reduction or other plant, fish in excess 
of an amount for which he has a bona fide order in writing, either from 
the plant to which the fish are to be delivered, or from an organization 
acting for the plants or for the fishermen within the region; and no person 
shall deliver fish to a packing plant which are of a size, condition or spe- 
cies not specified in the bona fide order. 

A person shall not be considered as having a bona fide order to deliver 
fish if it is general knowledge, or if it is known by him, that weather con- 
ditions, strikes or other labor conditions, or any other conditions will pre- 
vent the completed delivery of fish to the given plant. 

(b) To prevent waste offish, fishermen shall to the best of their ability, 
avoid impounding more fish when laying out the net than they intend to 
load on their boat, or of impounding fish of a size or species which do not 



comply to this order. In cases where more fish are accidentally caught in 
the net than it is desired to take on their boat or lighter, or in cases where 
fish which in size, quality or species do not conform to this order, are ac- 
cidentally caught in the net, fishermen shall release the excess fish or the 
fish which do not comply to this order while they are still alive and before 
they commence brailing out the catch.

§146. Sampling Methods. 

Samples taken pursuant to this section establish a rebuttable presump- 
tion that the sampHng results are evidence of the true condition of the en- 
tire load or lot in the examination of which the sample was taken. The pre- 
sumption established by this section is a presumption affecting the 
burden of proof. 

(a) In samphng loads or lots offish to determine species or size compo- 
sifion by number or weight, a minimum of five subsamples shall be taken 
at reasonable intervals throughout the unloading process. The depart- 
ment shall prescribe methods of selecting samples which shall be reason- 
ably calculated to produce by such samphng fair representations of the 
composition of the entire load or lot which is sampled. 

(b) To insure reasonable calculation of fair representation of composi- 

fion, subsamples shall be taken to provide that the following minimum 

sample sizes are attained when dealing with the prescribed percentage 

tolerances:

poses. Any permittee whose permit has been revoked may not take or as- 
sist in taking anchovies for reduction purposes for the remainder of the 
season. 

(2) Where Issued. Permits may be obtained from the department of- 
fices at Long Beach and Monterey. Such permits shall be valid until ter- 
minated or revoked. See subsection 699(b) of these regulations for the fee

(3) Conditions of Permits. 

(A) Suspension of Permits. When the harvest quotas established by the 
commission in subsection (a)(3)(F) are close to being reached, the de- 
partment will notify all permit holders of the closing date 48 hours prior 
thereto. 

(B) Gear Specifications: 

1. It is unlawful for any permittee to use a roundhaul net, with a wet- 
stretch mesh size less than 10/16 of an inch, except that the bag portion 
of a purse seine net may have a wet-stretch mesh size of not less than 8/ 1 6 
of an inch, to take anchovies for reduction purposes. The bag portion of 
a purse seine net shall be constructed as a single unit and shall not exceed 
12.5 percent of the total area of the net. 

2. It is unlawful for any permittee to possess aboard his fishing vessel 
any fishing gear contrary to the above specifications when anchovies tak- 
en for reduction purposes are possessed aboard the vessel. 

3. Minimum mesh size requirements are met if a standard stainless 
steel wedge of appropriate gauge can be passed, with thumb pressure 
only, through 16 of 20 sets of two meshes each of wet mesh. 

4. Notwithstanding these gear specifications, a permittee may, until 
April 1, 1986, possess and use a roundhaul net of smaller mesh size if, 
prior to use, the permittee has notified the department and has demon- 
strated to the department that the net was used in the California anchovy 
reduction fishery prior to May 24, 1983. 

(C) Gear Inspection. Fishing gear possessed aboard a permittee's ves- 
sel shall be subject to inspection by the department at all times to deter- 
mine compliance with gear specification requirements specified in sub- 
section (a)(3)(B). 

(D) Vessel Identification. The operator of any boat engaged in taking 
anchovies under these regulations shall at all times while operating such 
boat identify it by displaying on an exposed part of the superstructure, 
amidship on each side and on top of the house visible from the air, the 
department's registration number of the boat in 1 4-inch black numerals 
on white background. 

(E) Declaration of Intent to Take, Possess, Land or Transport Ancho- 
vies for Reduction Purposes. 

1. The provisions of subsection (a)(3)(E) shall apply only to vessels 
taking anchovies for reduction purposes as described in subsection 
(a)(3)(F)l.and2. 

2. No vessel shall be operated to take, carry or deliver anchovies for 
reduction purposes unless a declaration of intent has been filed regarding 
said vessel in accordance with these regulations. 



3. Before a vessel operator can file a declaration of intent as required 
by subsection (a)(3)(E) he must be the operator of a vessel duly registered 
as provided by section 7890 of the Fish and Game Code, and must pos- 
sess a valid commercial fishing license. 

4. No vessel operating under the authority of a declaration of intent 
tiled pursuant to these regulations shall take, carry or deliver anchovies 
for any purpose other than reduction except when taking anchovies for 
canning or live bait purposes as provided in subsection (a)(3)(E) 12 of 
these regulations, or when operating pursuant to an exception filed in ac- 
cordance with subsection (a)(3)(E)5 of these regulations. When operat- 
ing under the authority of an exception, no anchovies may be taken for 
reduction purposes. 

5. During the period for which the declaration is in force and effect, 
a named vessel may be used to take, carry and deliver anchovies for other 
than reduction purposes if, and only if, operator files an exception in ac- 
cordance with the following provisions: 

a. When the operator intends to use said vessel to take anchovies for 
purposes other than reduction, he shall so notify the Long Beach or 
Yountville offices of the department, either by letter or telegram, prior 
to the commencement of fishing. This notice shall be posted or sent prior 
to the commencement of fishing and shall be effective only on the vessel 
named. 

b. The notice shall contain the following information: the calendar 
days for which the exception is to be effective; the purpose for which the 
anchovies are to be taken; and the name and registration number of the 
vessel. 

6. Declaration of intent shall be filed with the department during nor- 
mal working hours at the Yountville, San Diego or Long Beach office of 
the department. The declaration of intent shall be filed on forms fur- 
nished by the department. 

7. Each declaration of intent shall specify the vessel to which it applies. 
Only one vessel may be specified on any one declaration, but a qualified 
applicant may file separate declarations for more than one vessel. 

8. Except as otherwise provided, any declaration of intent filed pur- 
suant to these regulations shall be in force only during the open season, 
or if filed after the beginning of such term, for the remainder thereof. 

9. A copy of each declaration filed under subsection (a)(3)(E) to take 
anchovies shall be carried aboard the vessel to which it relates and shall 
be exhibited upon demand to the authorized representative of any reduc- 
tion plant to which said vessel is delivering anchovies and upon demand 
to any officer of the department. 

10. No vessel which has filed a declaration of intent to take, carry and 
deliver anchovies for purposes of reduction and has filed no exception 
thereto shall place any net in the water for the purpose of taking ancho- 
vies in any unauthorized area. In the event of any violation of this section, 
the operator of said vessel shall be deemed in violation thereof 

1 1. Whenever anchovies are possessed aboard a vessel for which dec- 
laration of intent to take, carry and deliver anchovies for reduction pur- 
poses has been filed and such declaration is in full force and effect, and 
not then subject to any notice of exception pursuant to subsection 
(a)(3)(E)5, it shall be conclusively presumed that said anchovies were 
taken and were being carried for reduction purposes. 

12. Notwithstanding the other provisions of subsection (a)(3)(E), ves- 
sels operating under a declaration of intent to take anchovies for reduc- 
tion purposes may also take anchovies for canning purposes, pursuant to 
the appropriate sections of the Fish and Game Code and of this section, 
and may also take anchovies for hve bait purposes, providing that all con- 
ditions, laws, and regulations pertaining to the reduction fishery are ad- 
hered to while so engaged in live bait fishing. 

(F) Permit Areas and Quotas.
