This Order considers proposed regulations to amend 7 DE Admin. Code 3507, Delaware Black Sea Bass: Size Limit, Trip Limits, Seasons, and Quotas. The Department's Division of Fish and Wildlife commenced the regulatory development process with Start Action Notice 2014-01.

The public hearing record remained open at that time for public comment through April 10, 2014.
7.) The Department shall submit this Order approving the final regulation to the Delaware Register of Regulations for publication in its next available issue, and provide such other notice as the law and regulation require and the Department determines is appropriate.
