Arkansas Fisheries Biologists Suggest Removing, Revising Regulations

LITTLE ROCK – Biologists with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission presented a series of changes to regulations at the Commission’s formal briefing Wednesday, April 27, as part of the annual regulations cycle. The focus of many of these changes is to remove complicated regulations wherever possible and help people get started fishing.

“The staff has worked very hard in coming up with ways to achieve our conservation goals while reducing some of the confusion or restrictions that may cause a barrier to getting outdoors,” said Ben Batten, assistant chief of fisheries management. “Of 17 suggested changes, five are reductions in regulations, three are simplifications, three are continuations of existing temporary seasons, and two are required because of renovation work underway to reinvigorate two fisheries in the state.”    MORE
