NH Fish and Game regulation changes for 2015
CONCORD - Anglers and marine harvesters take notice. The NH Fish and Game department is enacting several rule changes that will become effective in 2015.
Implemented changes include:
Marine anglers should also be aware that a zero-tolerance policy has been enacted for cod in federal waters. The new regulations state that all cod caught in federal waters must be thrown back immediately.
It is also now a Class A misdemeanor to violate rules regarding American eels for a first offense, and a Class B felony for a second offense.
The seasonal and year-round closures for Berry Brook in Rye have been lifted, but Little Harbor is now a prohibited area for shellfish harvest.
