Massachusetts Environmental Police Coastal Bureau

Our Coastal Bureau officers patrol coastal waters conducting investigations of illegal fishing practices, marine theft cases, and enforcement of boat registration and titling requirements.

The coastal force mediates disputes between competing fishing interests such as draggers, gill-netters, lobster men, and recreational anglers. In addition, coastal officers closely monitor fish markets, processing facilities, shellfish digging, and Off-Highway Vehicle use on beaches.
