15A NCAC 03Q .0109      IMPLEMENTATION OF ESTUARINE STRIPED BASS MANAGEMENT PLANS: RECREATIONAL FISHING

The Marine Fisheries and Wildlife Resources Commissions shall implement their respective striped bass management actions for recreational fishing pursuant to their respective rule-making powers.  To preserve jurisdictional authority of each Commission, the following means are established through which management measures can be implemented by a single instrument in the following management areas:

(1)           In the Roanoke River Management Area, the exclusive authority to open and close seasons and areas, and establish size and creel limits whether inland or joint fishing waters shall be vested in the Wildlife Resources Commission.  An instrument closing any management area in joint waters shall operate as and shall be a jointly issued instrument opening or closing seasons or areas to harvest in the Roanoke River management area.

(2)           In the Albemarle Sound Management Area, the exclusive authority to open and close seasons and areas and establish size and creel limits, whether coastal or joint fishing waters shall be vested in the Marine Fisheries Commission.  The season shall close by proclamation if the quota is about to be exceeded.  In the Albemarle Sound Management Area administered by the Marine Fisheries Commission, a proclamation affecting the harvest in joint and coastal waters, excluding the Roanoke River Management Area, shall automatically be implemented and effective as a Wildlife Resources Commission action in the inland waters and tributaries to the waters affected.

SECTION .0200 ‑ BOUNDARY LINES: COASTAL‑JOINT‑INLAND FISHING WATERS

 

15a ncac 03q .0201      SPECIFIC CLASSIFICATION OF WATERS

The boundary lines of internal coastal waters which are specifically classified as inland, joint, or coastal fishing waters by agreement of the Marine Fisheries Commission and the Wildlife Resources Commission are described in 15A NCAC 03Q .0202 under the coastal counties in which such waters or portions thereof are located. Indentation indicates the waterbody named is tributary to the next preceding waterbody named and not so indented.  The specific classification applies to the main stem of the described waterbody.  A waterbody that is not specifically classified as inland, joint, or coastal fishing waters in 15A NCAC 03Q .0202 carries the same classification as that assigned to the waterbody of which it is tributary.  The coastal fishing water are found within the area bound by a line running parallel to the shoreline three miles offshore in the Atlantic Ocean and the joint or inland fishing water boundary in internal waters that is listed.  The joint waters are found within the area bound by the joint fishing water boundaries described in the rule and the inland water boundaries described.  The inland waters are found within the area bound by the inland fishing water boundary description and the headwaters of that particular waterbody.
