NYS DEC is filing a Notice of Emergency Adoption and Proposed Rule Making to amend 6 NYCRR Part 40, Marine Fish. This new rule will increase the incidental catch limit for scup to 2,000 pounds for commercial fishers in the small-mesh net fishery from April 15 through June 15. This rule will allow commercial fishers to retain and sell scup that are inadvertently caught and killed in the small mesh squid fishery. The rule will provide economic benefit to New York State commercial fishers, prevent the waste of scup caught as bycatch, and allow New York regulations to remain consistent with federal regulations.
This notice will be published in issue 18 of the State Register, dated May 1, 2019.
There will be a 60 day public comment period ending July 1, 2019. For more information please contact the person listed above.
