The 38-page guidebook was produced to help baitfish dealers and anglers identify the species of baitfish that are legal to use for fishing in Vermont. A new regulation, developed in 2003 in consultation with Vermont baitfish dealers, was passed which places controls on the importation and use of baitfish to help prevent the introduction and spread of harmful exotic species.
