ASSEMBLY, No. 2731



Sponsored by:
District 3 (Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem)

Removes statutory limitation on number of permits that may be issued by Division of Fish and Wildlife for the taking of beaver.

As introduced.

An Act concerning the taking of beaver, and amending R.S.23:4-55.

Be It Enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:

1. R.S.23:4-55 is amended to read as follows:
23:4-55. No person shall trap, take, capture, kill , or have in possession a beaver, except as authorized by a valid permit issued by the Division of Fish and Wildlife, and at a time and in a manner prescribed by the State Fish and Game Code. In the absence of provisions for a season and limit in the code, the season shall be January 15 through and including February 15 of each year, and the season limit shall be five beavers per permit. Permits shall expire on the last day of the open season. [The Division of Fish and Wildlife may issue up to and not exceeding 200 permits in any one calendar year.]
The fee for [this] a permit [is $15.00. The penalty for violating] issued under this section shall be $15. Any person who violates the provisions of this section [is] shall be subject to pay a fine of [no] not less than $100 [and no] or more than $200.
[The] In addition to the general permitting authority provided by this section, the Division of Fish and Wildlife may, in its discretion, issue permits to owners or lessees of land to control beavers that are destroying [said] the property.
(cf: P.L.1999, c.412, s.1)

2. This act shall take effect immediately.


This bill would grant the Division of Fish and Wildlife full authority to issue permits as is necessary and appropriate to manage the beaver resource in the State. In particular, the bill would remove the current statutory restriction, which limits to 200 the number of beaver trapping permits that may be issued by the division in any one year.
The authority granted by this bill is consistent with the divisionís existing authority to issue as many permits as it deems appropriate in relation to the management of various other game species.
