§ 146. Sampling Methods.
Samples taken pursuant to this section establish a rebuttable presumption that the sampling results are evidence of the true condition of the entire load or lot in the examination of which the sample was taken. The presumption established by this section is a presumption affecting the burden of proof.
(a) In sampling loads or lots of fish to determine species or size composition by number or weight, a minimum of five subsamples shall be taken at reasonable intervals throughout the unloading process. The department shall prescribe methods of selecting samples which shall be reasonably calculated to produce by such sampling fair representations of the composition of the entire load or lot which is sampled.
(b) To insure reasonable calculation of fair representation of composition, subsamples shall be taken to provide that the following minimum sample sizes are attained when dealing with the prescribed percentage tolerances:
