NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency Fisheries Division is reminding the public that the Jan. 11 deadline is approaching to submit comments concerning the plan to study the sustainability of commercial paddlefish roe fisheries on waters not currently open to commercial fishing in the state.
The Fisheries Division presented its plan at the December meeting of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission. The TWRA was directed to present the plan as a result of a law passed last May by the Tennessee General Assembly (TCA 70-2-303). Those waters include Cordell Hull, Norris, Watts Barr, and Melton Hill lakes and a currently restricted section of Old Hickory Lake.
The comment period has been open since Dec. 14. Comments may be sent via email to with Paddlefish Plan on the subject line.
