(2) As used in these regulations, any licensed wholesale fish dealer, fish buying station, fish buyer, bait dealer or canner whose licensed premises includes a receiving or docking facility for unloading the catch from a commercial fishing vessel shall be considered as the receiver and purchaser and shall have the responsibility for weighing the catch, reporting, and paying landing fees on such catch.

(E) To, upon transfer of the landed product from the primary dealer to the secondary dealer, provide the Fish Receiving Ticket record of the landing to the secondary dealer; and
(F) To retain a record of the required landing information of such catches.
(b) In addition through the Memorandum of Understanding, the secondary dealer agrees:
(A) To obtain the appropriate buyer's license;
(B) To complete the Fish Receiving Ticket that reports the transferred product landed at the receiving or buying dock of the primary dealer, by adding the species ex-vessel price;
(C) To submit copies to the Department in accordance with OAR 635-006-0210(2); and
(D) To submit to the Department a monthly remittance report and accompanying landing fees in accordance with OAR 635-006-0215.
(c) The Department may withdraw its approval of any Memorandum of Understanding effective seven calendar days from postmark of written notice, based on the failure to abide by any of the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding or violation of any provision of this rule. If the Department withdraws its approval, then section (2) of this rule shall be applicable.
(4) Two basic reports required for reporting the commercial catch of food fish and shellfish and the payment of landing fees due on such catch are:
(a) The State of Oregon Fish Receiving Ticket; and
(b) The Fish Dealer Monthly Remittance Report. These reports shall be submitted on forms supplied or approved by the Department and completed in accordance with OAR 635-006-0210 and 635-006-0215.
(5) For pink shrimp unloaded at a receiving or docking facility of a wholesale fish dealer or shellfish canner, the following shall apply:
(a) All pink shrimp shall be weighed and the net weight (pounds of raw shrimp landed) recorded on a Fish Receiving Ticket before being removed from the receiving facility and prior to processing;
(b) Notwithstanding subsection (5)(a) of this rule, a minimum sampling method or equivalent method may be used to estimate the net weight provided such method is approved and authorized in writing by the Department;
(c) Those wholesale fish dealers or canners authorized to use the sampling procedure in subsection (5)(b) of this rule are subject to inspection for accuracy by the Department or by the Oregon State Police, at any time. Authorization for use of a sampling procedure may be withdrawn if, in the judgment of the Department, the procedure employed is likely to be inaccurate.
(6) All commercial fishers landing Dungeness crab must report the area of primary catch to the dealer at the time of landing. The dealer is responsible for recording this information on the Fish Receiving Ticket.
(7) For wholesale fish bait dealers landing less than 5,000 pounds daily of species defined in OAR 635-004-0220(3)(b)(C) and 635-004-0220(3)(b)(D), the following shall apply:
