CHAPTER NUMBER AND TITLE: Ch. 2.90, Limited-Purpose Aquaculture License Streamlining
ADOPTED RULE NUMBER: 2012-324
CONCISE SUMMARY: The adopted rule increases opportunities to use Limited-Purpose Aquaculture (LPA) licenses and streamlines the license renewal process. It implements 2009 legislation allowing LPAs to be sited in the intertidal zone and for Maine nonresidents to hold LPA licenses. It further facilitates the use of marina slips, lobster pounds, and similar sites for small-scale aquaculture. Also, this rule-making simplifies the license renewal process; clarifies the meaning of the size limit on license sites; clarifies the procedure for raising seed shellfish on LPA sites in prohibited areas; and adds razor clams, green sea urchins, and bay scallops to the list of species that can be cultivated with an LPA license. Finally, it corrects and clarifies wording in the existing rule; clarifies that the source of stock must be listed in the application for all species and that changing the source of stock requires written authorization from DMR; eliminates the requirement for a certified tax map and riparian list in new applications for sites in marina slips, lobster pounds, and similar locations; and adds bottom anti-predator nets to the list of authorized gear.

Scallop fishing in the month of January is prohibited on Saturdays and Sundays, plus January 1, 2013 and January 22, 2013 are both closed. For Zone 1 management measures, the closed areas that expired in 2012 are retained as Limited Access Areas with a one day per week harvest in December, and two days per week harvest for the rest of the season with a 20 gallon daily limit and a 70 day season. For Zone 2, a 10 year rotational management plan is adopted, being phased in over the next three years with 1/3 of the coast within Zone 2 closed this upcoming season for rebuilding with a 20 gallon daily limit and a 70 day season. For Zone 3, a limited season of 44 days and 10 gallon daily limit are adopted with the Whiting/Denny's Bay and St. Croix River closed areas retained as a Limited Access Area with a one day per week harvest in December, and two days per week harvest for the rest of the season. In addition, a trigger mechanism to sustainably manage the Limited Access Areas as well as a number of smaller, one year targeted closures for Upper Chandler Bay, the Mud Hole Channel, Moosabec Reach, Inner Harbor/the Deep Hole, Blue Hill Salt Pond, Mussel Ridge, Ocean Point, Eastern Casco Bay, and Hussey Sound have been adopted to allow for the scallop resource to rebuild, and for sublegal and broodstock scallops to be protected. This final rule pertains to Option B. The second option, Option A, was proposed in a separate concurrent rule-making. However, based on public comments received supporting Option B, Option A was rejected.
