A true bill of lading or bill of sale must accompany the shipment to the final destination.

Resident Roe Buyer/Exporter Agent Permit

Background Information

Currently, a Roe Buyer/Exporter Permit is required for an individual to purchase roe (generally paddlefish, sturgeon, bowfin) from a Roe Taker. There are less than 5 Roe Buyer/Exporters in Arkansas. One of these has requested that we allow designated agents of the Roe Buyer/Exporter to purchase roe for the Roe Buyer/Exporter. This will be a cost-savings and a convenience for the Roe Buyer/Exporters. They will have the option to purchase roe when they are unavailable themselves and at more than one location.

At this time, we are recommending that both the Resident Roe Buyer/Exporter and Resident Roe Buyer/Exporter Agent be held responsible for any violations that the Resident Roe Buyer/Exporter Agent may commit. We are also recommending that the Resident Roe Buyer/Exporter Agent Permit should cost $100.

Justifications for Regulation Change

* It will afford potential cost-savings for Resident Roe Buyer/Exporters

* It will allow the Resident Roe Buyer/Exporter more opportunities to purchase roe which will also benefit Roe Takers

* Both the Resident Roe Buyer/Exporter and the Agents will be held responsible for their own actions and complying with regulations (both state and federal) regarding roe purchases

* The $100 fee for the Resident Roe Buyer/Exporter Agent Permit will offset agency handling costs and promote the selection of quality agents

* The change is not expected to have an effect of populations of roe-producing fish.
