FWP To Hold Hearings on Unauthorized Fish Placement Rule[03.05.2014]
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will hold eight public hearings beginning Feb. 24 on a draft rule that outlines how officials will respond to the unauthorized placement of live fish into public waters.
Commonly referred to as "bucket biology," the unauthorized placement of fish is a crime of significant concern and is likely to have adverse impacts on aquatic resources, angling opportunities, and fish management costs.
Eight public hearings are scheduled in February and March to discuss and take comment on the proposed rule. The sessions will begin at 7 p.m. at following locations:
•Feb. 24 Kalispell FWP Region 1 HQ; 490 N. Meridian Rd.
•Feb. 25 Missoula FWP Region 2 HQ; 3201 Spurgin Rd.
•March 3 Helena FWP HQ; 1420 E. Sixth Ave.
