Migratory Bird Conservation And Shellfish Aquaculture In Rhode Island: Legal Issues, Nicole Andrescavage Oct 2017

Migratory Bird Conservation And Shellfish Aquaculture In Rhode Island: Legal Issues, Nicole Andrescavage

Sea Grant Law Fellow Publications

From 2014 to 2016, Rhode Island Shellfish growers applied for a series of leases to produce oysters in close proximity to lands used for waterfowl hunting. The emerging conflict between these uses required the relevant agencies to seek modifications to minimize problems and highlighted a need to better understand the relevant authorities governing these agencies. This study provides an overview of how state and federal legal authorities govern the interaction of shellfish leasing and waterfowl management in Rhode Island, including whether shellfish leasing may be considered incidental take under federal law.

Funding Options For End-Of-Life Stewardship Of Fiberglass Boats, Austyn Carolin

Sea Grant Law Fellow Publications

This study provides a foundation for consideration of end-of-life stewardship programs for fiberglass boats by reviewing U.S. state and territory fees and boat-specific taxes. It identifies fees used in each jurisdiction, what these fees are allocated for, how they are allocated, and how they ensure that boaters support the ecosystems they use so frequently. Additionally, this study discusses states that address the issue of derelict vessels and how they have allotted state funds to manage the growing issue of derelict vessels in our waterways.
