That's a unique one isn't it. Wonder what the thought is there.

Maryland has an abundance of eels. The problem is overall east coast.

I suspect this was an attempt to keep the eel industry going in Maryland, yet show a possible cut in quota.

I think beard has got it right. If they are in abundance, no need to cut quota... But if they can limit harvest to full timers $$$.

The Chesapeake Bay doesn't stand alone, according to the Feds . If there is a 10% reduction on the east coast, Maryland has to cut their quota 10% also.

It reads no eel harvest on  Saturdays or Sundays for " Any" commercial license.

Exactly. That hurts the part time comm guys that only do weekends. I know a few that have full time jobs during the week and fish on the weekends.
