Agency 20. Marine Resources Commission
Chapter 190. Pertaining to Measuring Mesh Size of Menhaden Nets

4VAC20-190-10. Purpose.

The purpose of this chapter is to set forth the procedure that will be used for determining compliance with § 28.2-410 of the Code of Virginia. This section sets forth in part: "It is also unlawful for any person to use any purse net or other net having a stretched mesh of less than 1-3/4 inches." Since the law does not specify how the stretched mesh (mesh size) will be determined, this chapter shall serve to clarify the term stretched mesh and establish a technique for determining the size of the stretched mesh.

Statutory Authority

§ 28.2-201 of the Code of Virginia.
