CONDITIONS OF AMERICAN EEL POT PERMIT (PERSONAL USE /
NOT FOR SALE).
Eel pot to take American eels
for personal use
A. The Director may issue, deny, modify, suspend, or revoke annual eel pot permits for personal
use. Such permits shall authorize the taking of American eels for personal use only (not for
sale) with eel pots from waters designated in this section. Such permits shall be valid so long
as the harvest of eels in the Commonwealth is not prohibited by other state or federal, law or
regulation.
B. It shall be unlawful for a permit holder to possess elvers. It shall be unlawful for permit
holders fishing eel pots to take any species other than American eels. For the purposes of
this permit, the term “elver” shall mean any American eel of less than six inches in total
length.
C. Eels harvested with a “Personal Use/Not For Sale” American eel permit may not be bartered
or sold under any circumstances.
D. It shall be unlawful to place, set or fish any eel pot which has a mesh less than 1/2- inch by
1/2- inch. It shall be unlawful to place, set or fish any eel pot unless such pot contains at
least one unrestricted 4-inch by 4-inch escape panel of 1/2-inch by 1-inch mesh.
E. It shall be unlawful for the permit holder to place, set or fish more than five (5) eel pots.
F. Buoys for all “Personal Use/Not For Sale” eel pots must be permanently marked with
the Permit holder’s last name and the last four digits of the Permit holder’s social
security number.
G. American eels may be taken with eel pots in Back Bay and its natural tributaries (not
including Lake Tecumseh and Red Wing Lake), and North Landing River and its natural
tributaries from the North Carolina line to the Great Bridge locks.
H. It shall be unlawful for any permit holder to possess more than 50 eels daily. When
fishing from a boat or vessel where the entire catch is held in a common hold or
container, the daily possession limit shall be for the boat or vessel and shall be equal to
the number of permit holders on board multiplied by 50. The captain or operator of the
boat or vessel shall be responsible for any boat or vessel possession limit. Any eel taken
after the daily possession limit has been reached shall be returned to the water
immediately. Possession of any quantity of eel which exceeds the daily possession limit
described in this subsection of this section shall be presumed to be for commercial
purposes.
