This part shall be known as “the Fish Marketing Act.”

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 2261.)

13201.
  

This part is enacted in order to promote, foster, and encourage the intelligent and orderly marketing of fish and fishery products through cooperation; to eliminate speculation and waste; to make the distribution of fish and fishery products between producer and consumer as direct as can be efficiently done; and to stabilize the marketing of fish and fishery products.

As used in this part:

(a) “Fishery products” includes fish, crustaceans, mollusks, and marine products for human consumption.

(c) “Association” means any corporation organized under this part.

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 2261.)

13203.
  

Associations shall be deemed “nonprofit,” inasmuch as they are not organized to make profit for themselves, as such, or for their members, as such, but only for their members as producers of fishery products.

(Added by Stats. 1953, Ch. 207.)

13204.
  

The provisions of the General Corporation Law and all powers and rights thereunder, apply to associations, except where such provisions are in conflict with or inconsistent with the express provisions of this part.

13206.
  

An association shall be deemed not to be a conspiracy nor a combination in restraint of trade nor an illegal monopoly; nor an attempt to lessen competition or to fix prices arbitrarily or to create a combination or pool in violation of any law of the State; and the marketing contracts and agreements between the association and its members and any agreements authorized in this part shall be considered not to be illegal nor in restraint of trade nor contrary to the provisions of any statute enacted against pooling or combinations.

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 2261.)

13207.
  

Any provisions of law which are in conflict with this part shall not be construed as applying to associations.

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 2261.)

13208.
  

Any two or more associations may be merged into one such constituent association or consolidated into a new association. Such merger or consolidation shall be made in the manner prescribed by the General Corporation Law for domestic corporations.
