Feds Postpone Saltwater License Requirement

John Merwin reports that the controversial new requirement that all U.S. saltwater anglers “register” in a federal licensing system has stalled in the Office of Management and Budget. “A federal rule that would have required most unlicensed saltwater anglers to join an ‘Angler Registry‘ by Jan. 1, 2009 has been postponed. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has developed the proposed rule as required under law by the Magnuson- Stevens Act.” From Field & Stream’s “The Honest Angler.”
