1. That net fishing is not permitted in lake Champlain, and that the beneficial effects of such protection to the fisheries there was being seriously nullified by allowing seine fishing in Missisquoi bay, which is one of the most important spawning grounds of the lake.

2. The prohibition was adopted following representations by the Canadian section of the International Joint Commission appointed to consider the settlement of outstanding fishery questions between Canada and the United States.
