Applications received by the department or postmarked from October 1, 2003 through October 31, 2003 must be accompanied by a $50 late fee. Applications received by the department or postmarked after October 31, 2003 will be returned to the applicant unissued.

Species subject to this control date include only black rockfish, blue rockfish, brown rockfish, calico rockfish, copper rockfish, monkeyface eel, olive rockfish, quillback rockfish and treefish.

The deeper nearshore species fishery permit shall be valid for the remainder of the permit year and may be renewed in subsequent years pursuant to this section.
