BILL NUMBER:S2364

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to private
trout and black bass hatcheries

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this bill is to authorize the sale of
hatchery-raised trout and black bass for commercial purposes for
consumption or resale.

EXISTING LAW:
New York State law does not currently authorize the sale of
hatchery-raised trout or black bass for commercial purposes
for consumption or resale.

JUSTIFICATION:
New York State law does not currently authorize the sale
of hatchery-raised trout or black bass for commercial purposes for
consumption or resale. Because of this, unlike many other states,
hatchery-raised trout or black bass are not permitted to be sold to
restaurants in New York State. Current law unnecessarily prohibits
this business opportunity along with the jobs, tax revenue and other
potential benefits which would come with it. This bill would remove
this prohibition by providing that hatchery permits issued by the
Department of Environmental Conservation would authorize the sale of
hatchery-raised trout or black bass for commercial purposes for
consumption or resale.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.3059 of 2009-10; S.7549 of 2008

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
