New  York  state  during  the period [December 15] JANUARY 1 to April 15

waters  of  the state including the Hudson River from the Battery to the

long as such striped bass are of legal minimum size. Striped bass  unin-
tentionally  taken in violation of this subdivision shall be returned to
the water immediately without unnecessary injury.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
