DEC Announces Revised Baitfish Regulations

New Rules Establish Corridors for Moving Bait for Personal Use in Same Waterbody

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced changes to current state regulations banning the overland transport of uncertified baitfish by anglers, including baitfish that are personally collected. The proposed revisions in the Notice of Proposed Rule Making would allow for the overland transport of personally collected baitfish within three specified transportation corridors, as long as the baitfish are used in the same waters from which they are collected.
