AGENDA POSTED FOR FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION SPRING MEETING

Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 04/08/2008 (680 reads)
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will hold its spring quarterly meeting April 21-22 at the Clarion Hotel in DuBois, PA.

Commission committees will meet beginning at approximately 9:45 a.m. on Monday, April 21, and again at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, April 22. The full Commission will meet for formal consideration of the agenda beginning at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. All committee meetings and the review of the agenda are open to the public. Attendance is encouraged. Among the items for the Commissioners to consider at the meeting is the approval of a Boating Infrastructure Grant (BIG), administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in the amount of $1.35 million to the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh. The grant is for construction of a 525-foot tie-up facility for transient boaters and day dockage uses for up to seventeen 26-foot or larger non-trailerable boats. The main purpose of the project is to provide transient recreational boaters with access to the South Shore Riverfront Park and the SouthSide Works, a major mixed-use development, along with multiple sites of scenic, cultural and historic significance in Pittsburgh.

The Commissioners will also consider the approval of a grant to Pennsylvania Trout, Inc. in the amount of $10,000 per fiscal year for the next three fiscal years totaling $30,000, for the purposes of expanding the national Trout in the Classroom (TIC) program in Pennsylvania. TIC provides students with the opportunity to raise trout from eggs (or fry) to fingerlings and then release their fish in approved trout waters. Teachers use this experience to teach students about trout biology, ecology and water quality, and fish management.

Other actions slated for the Commission meeting are staff recommendations for a property easement at Opossum Lake in Cumberland County and land acquisition along Crooked Creek in Erie County. Approval of the publication of a notice of proposed rulemaking for the use of long bows and crossbows to take catfish is on tap for the meeting, as well as adding additional waters to the Class A Wild Trout Waters list and the list of Wild Trout Stream sections.
