AGO Opinions with Topic: POWER OF THE STATE TO REQUIRE PERSONAL AND BOAT REGISTRATION LICENSES OF THOSE LANDING FISH IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON WHICH WERE TAKEN IN THE OFFSHORE WATERS
AGO 1950 No. 291 >  June 29, 1950
POWER OF THE STATE TO REQUIRE PERSONAL AND BOAT REGISTRATION LICENSES OF THOSE LANDING FISH IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON WHICH WERE TAKEN IN THE OFFSHORE WATERS
POWER OF THE STATE TO REQUIRE PERSONAL AND BOAT REGISTRATION LICENSES OF THOSE LANDING FISH IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON WHICH WERE TAKEN IN THE OFFSHORE WATERS
The State of Washington, in the absence of federal regulation, may require personal fishing licenses and boat registration licenses of those landing fish in the State of Washington which were taken from the offshore waters, since the State of Washington is actively engaged in regulating the offshore fishery and has a vital interest therein and since the offshore fishery is closely related to the state fishery.
