Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 01/31/2007 (440 reads)
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has placed a temporary ban on the transportation of live fish from Lake Erie and its tributary waters inland. PFBC Executive Director Doug Austen signed an order this morning making itunlawful to transport or cause the transport of live fish out of thePennsylvania portion of the Lake Erie watershed. Waters included in thePennsylvania portion of the Lake Erie watershed are Twentymile Creek,Orchard Beach Run, Sixteenmile Creek, Twelvemile Creek, EightmileCreek, Sevenmile Creek, Sixmile Creek, Fourmile Creek, Mill Creek,Cascade Creek, Walnut Creek, Trout Run, Godfrey Run, Elk Creek, CrookedCreek, Raccoon Creek, Turkey Creek, Conneaut Creek, Ashtabula Creek andtheir tributaries.

The Executive Director has found thatthis action is necessary and appropriate for the protection,preservation and management of fish. The intent of the ban is to helpreduce the potential spread of exotic fish species and fish diseasesfound in the Great Lakes to the state’s inland waters.

Thetemporary ban goes into effect immediately and will remain in placeuntil January 1, 2008. The Commission, under a separate notice of proposed rulemaking,will seek public comments on a permanent change to the Commission’sfishing regulations. A vote on adopting a permanent regulation isexpected later this year.
