Rules Amended: 635-005-0465

Subject: This amended rule delays the opening of the 2013 commercial ocean Dungeness crab fishing season from December 1 until December 16, 2013 in accordance with the Tri-State Memorandum-Of-Understanding and Preseason Testing Protocol.

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

Closed Season in Pacific Ocean and Columbia River

(1) It is unlawful to take, land or possess Dungeness crab for commercial purposes from the Pacific Ocean or Columbia River from August 15 through December 15.

(2) The season opening for the commercial Ocean Dungeness crab fishery may be delayed in one or more fishing zones based on the results of crab quality testing. The Pre-season Testing Protocol for the Tri-State Coastal Dungeness crab Commercial Fishery (hereafter, “Tri-State Protocol”) specifies the process for establishing fishing zones (section VI) and coordinating the opening of the fishery in Washington, Oregon, and California north of Point Arena (sections IV and V). Therefore, the following sections of the Tri-State Protocol (Revised August, 2011) are hereby incorporated into Oregon Administrative Rule by reference:

(a) Section IV — Season Opening Criteria.

(b) Section V — Test Fishing and Process for Setting the Season Opening Date.

(c) Section VI — Procedure for Establishing Fishing Zones.

(3) It is unlawful to land, receive or buy, Dungeness crab in the first thirty days of the ocean Dungeness crab fishery from a vessel that has not been certified by officials of the State of Oregon, Washington, or California to have been free of Dungeness crab before fishing in the ocean Dungeness crab fishery. In the event the area between Gray’s Harbor, Washington and Point Arena, California is divided into zones with different season opening dates, the ocean Dungeness crab fishery refers to the fishery in that zone for the purposes of this rule.

(4) In the event the area between Gray’s Harbor, Washington and Point Arena, California is divided into zones with different season opening dates, the transfer of a permit from one vessel to another is suspended from the earliest season opening date through thirty days after the latest season opening date, except in the event a vessel is unintentionally destroyed due to fire, capsizing, sinking, or other event.

(5) Upon a determination by the Department that catch in Oregon’s ocean Dungeness crab fishery after May 31 is greater than ten percent of the catch in the previous December 1 through May 31 period, the Director shall adopt a temporary rule closing the commercial season until the following December 1.

Certified to be Effective: 12-10-13 thru 6-8-14

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-011-0100

Subject: This amended rule adds radio-tagged hatchery steelhead in Northwest Zone streams to the existing exception to non-retention of radio-tagged fish (item 17, found on page 10 of the 2013 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations and page 11 of the 2014 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations). Rule modifications allow retention of radio-tagged fish in conjunction with a planned radio telemetry study in the North Fork Nehalem River. This amended rule encompasses the entire Northwest Zone do to the possibility that some radio-tagged hatchery winter steelhead may stray into adjacent basins.

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

General Rule

(1) It is unlawful to take any fish, shellfish, or marine invertebrates for personal use except as provided in these rules which include and incorporate the 2013/2014 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations by reference. However, additional regulations may be adopted in this rule division from time to time and to the extent of any inconsistency, they supersede the 2013/2014 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(2) Item 17 of “General Restrictions: The following activities are unlawful:” found on Page 10 of the 2013 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations and on page 11 of the 2014 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, is amended to read: “17. Take a fish which has had a radio tag inserted (a fish with an antenna trailing from its mouth or body) except radio-tagged fish may be retained, when otherwise legal, (consistent with all other existing regulations and applicable laws) in the mainstem Columbia River and its tributaries. And, radio-tagged hatchery steelhead may be retained, when otherwise legal, (consistent with all other existing regulations and applicable laws) in Northwest Zone streams.”

Rule Caption: Prior Year 5,000 Pound Landing Requirement Temporarily Removed from Brine Shrimp Permit Renewal Rule

Adm. Order No.: DFW 131-2013(Temp)

Filed with Sec. of State: 12-9-2013

Certified to be Effective: 12-9-13 thru 6-7-14

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 635-005-0705

Subject: This amended rule allows the renewal of Brine Shrimp permits without the previously required 5,000 pound landing from the previous year. Due to low water in Lake Abert, in 2013, harvesters were unable to use their boats and harvest enough Brine Shrimp to satisfy the 5,000 pounds in landings required for permit renewal.

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

635-005-0705

Renewal of Permit

(1) Brine Shrimp Permits may be renewed the following year by submitting to the Department a $100.00 fee (plus a $2.00 license agent fee) and a complete application date-stamped or postmarked by January 31 of the year for which renewal is sought.

(2) An application for renewal of a Brine Shrimp Permit shall be considered complete if it is legible, has all information requested in the form, and is accompanied by the required fee in full. Any application which is not complete shall be returned, and unless it is thereafter resubmitted and deemed complete by December 31 of the permit year sought, the individual may not be considered to have applied for renewal in a timely manner.

(3) It is the responsibility of the permittee to ensure that an application is complete and is filed in a timely manner. Failure of the Department to return an application for incompleteness or of an individual to receive a returned application may not be grounds for treating the application as having been filed in a timely and complete manner.

Rules Amended: 635-004-0275

Rules Suspended: 635-004-0275(T)

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

635-004-0275

Scope, Inclusion, and Modification of Rules

(1) The commercial groundfish fishery in the Pacific Ocean off Oregon is jointly managed by the state of Oregon and the federal government through the Pacific Fishery Management Council process. The Code of Federal Regulations provides federal requirements for this fishery, including but not limited to the time, place, and manner of taking groundfish. However, additional regulations may be promulgated subsequently by publication in the Federal Register, and these supersede, to the extent of any inconsistency, the Code of Federal Regulations. Therefore, the following publications are incorporated into Oregon Administrative Rule by reference:

(a) Code of Federal Regulations, Part 660, Subparts C, D, E and F (October 1, 2012 ed.);

(b) Federal Register Vol. 78, No. 2, dated January 3, 2013 (78 FR 580).

(2) Persons must consult the federal regulations in addition to division 4 to determine all applicable groundfish fishing requirements. Where federal regulations refer to the fishery management area, that area is extended from shore to three nautical miles from shore coterminous with the Exclusive Economic Zone.

(3) The Commission may adopt additional or modified regulations that are more conservative than federal regulations, in which case Oregon Administrative Rule takes precedence. See OAR 635-004-0205 through 635-004-0235 and 635-004-0280 through 635-004-0365 for additions or modifications to federal groundfish regulations.

(4) Notwithstanding the regulations defined in section (1) of this rule, the National Marine Fisheries Service, by means of Federal Register/Vol. 78, No. 156/Tuesday, August 13, 2013, announced inseason actions and management measures effective August 13, 2013, including but not limited to:

(a) Changes to limited entry fixed gear and open access fixed gear sablefish DTL fishery trip limits; and

(b) Changes to limited entry fixed gear fishery trip limits for shortspine thornyhead.

(5) Notwithstanding the regulations defined in section (1) of this rule, the National Marine Fisheries Service, by means of Federal Register/Vol.78, No. 232/Tuesday, December 3, 2013, announced inseason actions and management measures effective December 3, 2013, including but not limited to:

(a) Changes to limited entry fixed gear and open access fixed gear sablefish DTL fishery trip limits for Period 6, 2013; and

(b) Changes to limited entry fixed gear and open access fixed gear sablefish DTL fishery trip limits for Periods 1-6, 2014.
