Marine Fisheries Regulations

Whether you are a recreational or commercial fishermen or a seafood dealer, you need to stay up to date on all marine fisheries regulations.

Marine fisheries regulations are updated throughout the year. Permit holders are responsible for remaining compliant with Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) rules and regulations. DMF receives its mandate from the General Laws of the Commonwealth. It authorizes the Director of DMF to manage the Commonwealth's marine fisheries, including how often, how many, when and where fish may be taken.
