§ 57. The commission may from time to time and as may be required for the conservation of the mussel resources of the State, prescribe areas in any part of the State from which mussels shall not be taken for such a period as may be specified by the commission, but no such period shall exceed five (5) years nor shall more than one-half (%) of the mussel producing waters of the State bé closed at the same time. It shall be unlawful to take, catch or kill mussels for commercial purposes in waters so closed. All orders of the commission affecting mussels shall be published once in a newspaper of general circulation, published within each county containing or having on its boundary waters affected by such order. If there be no newspaper in such county, then the publication shall be made in like manner and for a like period in a county nearest to such waters wherein a newspaper is being published. All such orders shall take effect at the time fixed therein, but not less than thirty days after the publication thereof. The commission may extend the time within which such order shall take effect. Any person, firm or corporation who shall violate the provisions of this section in taking, catching or killing mussels for commercial purposes in any waters of this State which have been declared closed areas by the commission shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by a fine of one hundred (100) dollars, or by imprisonment in the county jail not less than sixty days. § 58. On or before the 30th day of November of the year in which any license was issued, the holder thereof shall make a written report to the commission on blanks furnished by the commission, stating the total weight of mussels taken, caught or killed under such license, the names and locations of waters from which the mussels were taken and the amount received for shells sold. Upon failure to make such report, the commission shall not issue another license to such person, firm or corporation to take, catch or kill mussels until such report shall be made. All moneys received under the provisions of this section shall at the end of each month be paid into the State treasury. The commission shall enforce the law relating to mussels and for the purpose of carrying into effect said law the commission, wardens and their deputies are authorized and empowered, without warrant, to arrest any one violating any of the provisions of this section, and to seize mussels and devices adapted to taking, catching, or killing mussels, and to inspect and examine mussels in any warehouse, boat, store, car, conveyance vehicle, basket or other receptacle, when they have good cause to believe that any of the provisions of the law relating to mussels has been violated, except when it is necessary forcibly to enter a dwelling house. Any court having jurisdiction of the offense, upon receiving proof of probable cause for believing that mussels illegally taken, caught, killed or had in possession are concealed, shall issue a search warrant and cause a search of the alleged place of concealment to be made. The confiscation and sale of mussels by the commission, wardens or deputies shall proceed in the manner provided by law for the sale of confiscated game. The terms hereinafter enumerated and as used in this Act shall be taken to mean as follows:

(1) “Mussels” shall mean and embrace the pearly fresh water mussel, or clam, or Naiad, and the shell thereof. (2) “Crowfoot bar” shall mean a bar of any material bearing a series of hooks designed to catch or adapted for catching mussels by the insertion of such hooks between the shells of mussels. (3) “Dredge” shall mean any implement of capture which is adapted for dragging the bottom of waters and is operated with or without the aid of mechanical power, except the crowfoot bar. (4) “Commercial purposes” shall mean and be presumed to include the taking, catching or killing of any mussels and having in possession of mussels, unless the contrary is proven. § 59a. Nothing in this Act shall be construed to prevent the issuing of certificates granting to persons the right to breed and sell game birds and game animals for propagation and scientific purposes, or to breed and raise fur-bearing animals for their fur or for propagation purposes. Such certificates may be granted by the commission to any person of the age of twenty-one years and upwards. In order to obtain such certificates the applicant for the same must pay to the said commission a license fee of two dollars ($2), and must file with said commission a properly executed bond in the sum of five hundred dollars ($500), signed by two responsible citizens of the State as sureties. This bond shall be forfeited to the State and the certificate become void upon proof that the holder of such certificate has sold any game bird or game animal for any purpose other than for propagation or scientific purposes, or, in case of a certificate granting the right to breed and raise fur-bearing animals for their fur and for propagation purposes, that the holder thereof has killed any such fur-bearing animals during the closed season therefor. The certificate authorized by the provision of this section shall expire on the first day of June following date of issue, and shall not be transferable. § 2. Section 20 of an Act entitled “An Act for the conservation of game, wild fowl, birds, and fish in the State of Illinois, for the appointment of a commission and staff for the enforcement thereof, and to repeal certain Acts relating thereto,” approved June 23, 1913, in force July 1, 1913, be and the same is hereby repealed, and an Act entitled “An Act to regulate and fix the time of killing fur-bearing animals,” approved June 4, 1907, in force July 1, 1907, be and the same is hereby in all respects repealed.
