   (2) The commission shall establish, through regulation, a

directly from another California port or place and during that
transit has not first arrived at a port or place outside California
or moved outside the EEZ prior to arrival at the subsequent
California port or place.
   (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, all fees imposed
pursuant to this section shall be deposited into the Marine Invasive
