Report Card Regulatory Proposal

A notice of proposed changes in regulations concerning sport fishing report card requirements and fees has been posted on the Fish and Game Commission's website at: www.fgc.ca.gov/regulations/2013/index.aspx#1_74

BRIEF SUMMARY (Further details & proposed regulatory language is posted on the Commissionís website):

The proposed regulatory changes will enact a non-reporting fee to recover the increased costs of management of lobster due to non-reporting of report cards, adjust the duration of the lobster report card and timing of reporting to match the lobster season, modify replacement procedures for lobster, steelhead, and salmon report cards, simplify reporting procedures and clean up regulatory language due to the implementation of the Automatic License Data System (ALDS). Specifically it would:

  • Require a non-return fee of $20.00 to be applied at the time of purchase of a lobster report card for all individuals who failed to return their lobster report card from the previous season by the deadline.
  • Specify that lobster report cards shall be valid for the duration of the lobster fishing season and the deadline for the return of lobster report cards will be April 30 following the season for which the report card was valid.
  • Update replacement report card procedures for lobster, steelhead and salmon report cards. Any person who loses his or her lobster, steelhead or salmon report card must provide a written affidavit to the Department that contains specified information.
  • Simplify and clarify return and reporting procedures. Report cards returned by mail and not received by the Department will be assumed not returned and the individual will be required to report their report card lost.
