(2) The report must include the following:
(a) The wholesale fish buyer or limited fish seller name and purchasing location;
(b) Date of purchase;
(c) Each fish receiving ticket number, including the first alphanumeric letter, used on the purchasing date; and
(d) The following catch data for each fish ticket used: The total number of days fished, gear, catch area, species, number, and total weight for each species purchased and all take home fish not purchased (wholesale fish buyer) or sold (limited fish seller).
