A. Class A resident gill net permittees may only transfer that permit to another registered commercial fisherman who is a resident of the Commonwealth of Virginia. The transferor and the transferee shall have documented all prior fishing activity on Virginia mandatory reporting forms and shall not be under any sanction by the Marine Resources Commission for noncompliance with the regulation. Transfers must be approved by the commissioner, or his designee, and are permanent.

The transferor and the transferee shall have documented all prior fishing activity on Virginia mandatory reporting forms and shall not be under any sanction by the Marine Resources Commission for noncompliance with the regulation.
