Texas Parks and Wildlife Code

Sec. § 76.005
Affidavit of Riparian Rights


(a)

The department may require the owner of riparian rights described in Section 76.004 (Riparian Rights) of this code when offering oysters for sale to make an affidavit stating that the oysters were produced on his property.

(b)

The failure of an owner of riparian rights described in Section 76.004 (Riparian Rights)(a) to have an affidavit when required by the department or to show it to a game warden on request or to the person to whom the oysters are offered for sale when required by the department is prima facie evidence that the oysters were produced from public beds.
