Massachusetts Commercial Fishing Permits

All persons who land and sell finfish, shellfish, lobsters, edible crabs or other living marine resources in Massachusetts must have a commercial fishing permit from the Division of Marine Fisheries and must sell only to permitted Massachusetts dealers. Commercial permits may be endorsed for access to the many "regulated" fisheries. Regulated fisheries include most gear types (other than hook fishing), and species that are restricted by quota. For a complete list of regulated fisheries, see the endorsements section below. All commercial permits, except Rod & Reel and Seasonal lobster, may be endorsed for shellfish at no additional cost.
