68B-31.001. Northeast Florida Live Bait Shrimp Fishery; Purpose and Intent  

Effective on Monday, January 1, 1996
  • 1The purpose and intent of Rules 768B-31.001 8through 968B-31.003, 10F.A.C., are to impose gear specifications for the type of trawls used to harvest live bait shrimp in the nearshore and inshore Florida waters of Nassau, Duval, St. Johns, Putnam, Flagler, and Clay Counties. The gear specifications are designed to limit the harvest capacity of live bait shrimpers, making their limited catch more valuable as live bait shrimp than as dead shrimp.
