211:20 Helper's License.
Any person licensed under the provisions of RSA 211:18 may get a helper's license which entitles the person to have the help of a person in the taking of lobsters or crabs. The helper's license may be transferred to any one helper employed by the licensee, but may not be transferred to a person who previously had a lobster license which is under suspension. A helper may assist, set, or haul pots or traps or any other device used in the taking of lobsters and crabs only in the presence of and aboard the boat of a person licensed under the provisions of RSA 211:18, and who holds a valid helper's license. The executive director shall adopt rules pursuant to RSA 541-A relative to the fee for a helper's license and the terms and restrictions of a helper's license to comply with lobster trap limits established under the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission management plan for American lobster relative to reduced fishing effort.
