Failure to obtain a permit or failure to affix the permit or to have the permit accompany the conveyance is punishable under RCW 77.15.350.

(2) Permits will be approved with conditions or denied based on the shellfish disease or pest transfer risk. Existing permits may be revoked, suspended or modified upon a finding of an aquatic disease or pest or upon determination of violation of the conditions of a permit. In the event of revocation, suspension or denial of a permit, the affected party may appeal through the Administrative Procedure Act. A suspended or revoked permit will remain suspended or revoked during the appeal process. It is unlawful to make any transfer requiring a permit under subsection (1) of this section if a permit has been revoked or suspended. Violation of this subsection is punishable under RCW 77.15.350.

(3) When shellfish health agreements have been made by memoranda of agreement between WDFW and companies which operate shellfish hatcheries, the company may be authorized to transfer shellfish seed to seed buyers without a transfer permit. Shellfish health agreements may be revoked for cause. Shellfish health agreements will require submission of a seed transfer report to the department on a quarterly basis and when requested by authorized department personnel.
