As used in this section, the term "seasonal industry" means an industry in which, because of the seasonal nature thereof,
it is customary to operate only during a regularly recurring period or periods of less than 26 weeks in a calendar year. The
commission shall, after investigation and hearing, pursuant to Title 5, section 9051 et seq., determine, and may thereafter
from time to time redetermine, the longest seasonal period or periods during which, by the best practice of the industry in
question, operations are conducted. Until such determination by the commission, no industry may be deemed seasonal.
