BILL NUMBER:S5134

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the
management of squid

PURPOSE:
To extend the Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC)
authority to manage squid.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would extend DEC's authority to fix, by regulation,
management measures for squid in the State's waters until December
31, 2013.

JUSTIFICATION:
DEC's regulatory authority over squid is necessary in order to
preserve the current regulatory program. Failure to extend the
existing regulatory authority by December 31, 2011 will result in the
loss of regulatory protection of these species. Moreover, regulatory
authority is critical for New York State to maintain compliance with
Fishery Management Plans for important marine and anadromous fish
species along the coast. Failure to make necessary regulatory changes
required by Fishery Management Plans places New York in jeopardy of
closure of commercial and recreational fisheries. Finally, ECL
13-0105, which sets forth the State's marine fisheries conservation
and management policy, provides that this policy shall be carried out
through achievement of certain objectives. One of these objectives is
that the state's transboundary and migratory species shall be
consistent with any interjurisdictional management plans, interstate
or state-federal. Regulatory authority provides the mechanism to
react timely to the ever changing fishery management plans.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
Last extended by Chapter 146 of the laws of 2007.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the same date as the enactment as a
Chapter of the laws of 2011 entitled, "AN ACT to amend the
environmental conservation law, in relation to the management of
Atlantic cod."
