Here's a response that a fellow on a fishing board said he received from DFG with some more information on how it will work. Note that although the cards will be available earlier, it says the requirement will be effective as of next fall's season opening.
Thank you for your inquiry into the new report card regulations for spiny lobster-- here are the answers to your questions, provided by our marine regulatory specialist, Marci Yaremko:
How much will it cost?
How often do I need a new one?
is it by season or by month or by trip?
Does everyone on the boat need one?
Who needs to have one?
Do kids under 14 need one too?
What's going to be the process to submit this card?
The card requirement will take effect when the season opens fall, 2008. The December issue of the Marine Management News newsletter, set to be posted on the Web site shortly, will feature an article describing the new regulations for lobster, sturgeon, abalone, salmon and steelhead. One of the best ways to stay up-to-date on changing regulations is to sign up for the Marine Region Electronic News and Information Service at www.dfg.ca.gov/marine/subscribe.asp. When you subscribe to the service, you will receive e-mail notification of press releases, newsletters, and other informational bulletins. It's a great way to stay informed. If you haven't already done so, I'd encourage you to sign up!
Please don't hesitate to contact me with further questions you may have.
