AN ACT Relating to eliminating additional operators on Puget Sound gill net salmon licenses; and amending RCW 75.28.035.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON:
Sec. 1. RCW 75.28.035 and 1989 c 316 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:
An application for issuance or renewal of a commercial fishing license shall contain the name and address of the vessel owner, the name and address of the vessel operator, the name and number of the vessel, a description of the vessel and fishing gear to be carried on the vessel, and other information required by the department.
At the time of issuance of a commercial fishing license the director shall furnish the licensee with a vessel registration and two license decals.
Vessel registrations and license decals issued by the director shall be displayed as provided by rule of the director.
A commercial fishing license is not valid if the vessel is operated by a person other than the operator listed on the license. The director may authorize additional operators for the license, except for Puget Sound gill net salmon licenses. Unless adjusted by the director pursuant to the director's authority granted in RCW 75.28.065, the fee for an additional operator is twenty dollars.
The vessel owner shall notify the director on forms provided by the department of changes of ownership or operator and a new license shall be issued upon payment of a fee of twenty dollars.
A defaced, mutilated, or lost license or license decal shall be replaced immediately. Unless adjusted by the director pursuant to the director's authority granted in RCW 75.28.065, the replacement fee is ten dollars.
