§ 142. Fishermen and Fish Plants.
(a) In order to prevent waste of fish, no person shall take or bring into any cannery, packing, preserving, reduction or other plant, fish in excess of an amount for which he has a bona fide order in writing, either from the plant to which the fish are to be delivered, or from an organization acting for the plants or for the fishermen within the region; and no person shall deliver fish to a packing plant which are of a size, condition or species not specified in the bona fide order.
A person shall not be considered as having a bona fide order to deliver fish if it is general knowledge, or if it is known by him, that weather conditions, strikes or other labor conditions, or any other conditions will prevent the completed delivery of fish to the given plant.
(b) To prevent waste of fish, fishermen shall to the best of their ability, avoid impounding more fish when laying out the net than they intend to load on their boat, or of impounding fish of a size or species which do not comply to this order. In cases where more fish are accidentally caught in the net than it is desired to take on their boat or lighter, or in cases where fish which in size, quality or species do not conform to this order, are accidentally caught in the net, fishermen shall release the excess fish or the fish which do not comply to this order while they are still alive and before they commence brailing out the catch.
