Public Comment Period on Proposed Commercial Blue Crab Regulations Extended
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has extended the public comment period for proposed commercial blue crab regulations through the close of business on Friday, February 27, 2009. Public comment is an important part of the regulatory process. Based on the large public response thus far, the Department is extending the public comment period to provide the public with an additional opportunity to comment on the proposed changes.
The proposed regulations can be viewed in the January 16, 2009 volume of the Maryland Register or online at http://www.dnr.state.md.us/fisheries/regulations/proposedregulations.html.
