Elver season opens

AUGUSTA — The Maine Department of Marine resources published a final rule last week establishing elver quota allocations for the 2018 season, which begins March 22.

The 2018 allocations for individuals who held a license in 2017 are the same as their 2017 allocations, less any quota that was associated with licenses suspended for the 2017 season, plus any quota associated with licenses not renewed in 2017 or licenses suspended for the duration of the 2018 season, which are distributed evenly to all license holders.

Harvesters who are eligible to purchase an elver license as part of the 2018 elver license lottery are allocated a quota of 4 pounds.
