TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in
relation to extending the authority of the department of environmental
conservation to manage squid

Purpose of Bill: The bill would extend the authority of the
Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to manage squid.

Summary of provisions:

Section 1 of this bill would amend Environmental Conservation Law
(ECL) § 13-0339-a(1)(h) to extend, until December 31, 2015, DEC's
authority to fix by regulation measures for the management of squid

Section 2 of this bill provides that the bill would take effect

Existing law: ECL § 13-0339-a(1)(h) grants DEC regulatory authority,
until December 31, 2013, for the management of squid.

Prior Legislative history: ECL § 13-1339-a was added by Chapter 196
of the Laws of 1999. Authority to manage squid was added by Chapter
589 of the Laws of 2002. This authority was last extended by Chapter
297 of the Laws of 2011.

Statement in support: ECL § 13-0105 establishes that the State's
marine fisheries conservation and management policy shall be shall be
consistent with any inter-jurisdictional management plans, interstate
or state-federal. This bill would extend DEC's regulatory authority
for squid for an additional four years, and ensure that DEC continues
to be able to maintain compliance with any applicable federal
management plan or Interstate Fishery Management Plan (FMP) adopted by
the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission. Authority to
establish appropriate regulations consistent with the Federal FIVIP
for squid is essential to provide uniform protection for this
resource. Squid are managed by a Federal quota system which is
applicable to federal waters and federal permit holders only. It is
critical for DEC to maintain the authority to timely set and adjust
trip limits and to close fisheries when quotas are reached, or to
adopt other management regulations such as minimum mesh size to
protect squid fisheries.

Budget implications: None.

Local Impact: None.

Effective Date: The bill would take effect immediately.
