I mentioned previously that if you look at the commentaries, someone pointed out that citizens in Switzerland are law abiding people so if your neighbors find out you broke the law, they may or may not hand you over to the authorities for breaking the laws. I know the legislation seemed absurd but there is always a bright side and a downside on every single thing. It's a start at least to minimize abuse inflicted on fish and while it is good to see some changes, there are a few things in the legislation that are going overboard such as the one you and Amphitrite pointed out. In my opinion, the legislation will need further reviewing before it is enforced in September 2008.

It's a silly legislation - some things cannot be controlled by government. This is one of those things. How are they really going to regulate the things in this legislation?
