Before you all rush out to get your spiny lobster “punch card,” please note, according to the California Department of Fish & Game website, the requirement for a spiny lobster report card for all persons does not become effective until next season—September 27, 2008 to be exact.

Mike,
Thank you for pointing out that important date. At the time of going to press with our January/February issue that specific information was not yet available on their website, only that a punch card would be required in 2008.
