§ 12758-B. Fish stocking by a municipality
This section governs the stocking of ponds with fish by municipalities.
This bill authorizes a municipality to stock a pond with fish when the pond is located entirely within the municipality's boundaries, the municipality purchases the fish to be stocked from the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and the municipality provides the public with boat access to the pond being stocked by the municipality. It also requires the municipality to pay any costs incurred by the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife associated with the municipality's stocking activity.
