Title: Biscayne National Park--Commercial Fishing 

This rule would establish a non-transferable lifetime permit system that would phase out commercial fishing in Biscayne National Park as permits expire over time. The rule would subject shrimp trawlers to inspections to ensure that trawl gear complies with state law, prohibit commercial fishing for a sponge and tropical ornamental marine life species, and prohibit setting commercial lobster or crab traps in identified coral reef protection areas. The rule would not regulate recreational fishing anywhere in the park.
