Scale Certification Information

In order to qualify for a pin, fish that meet the minimum weight requirement must be weighed on a certified scale. A scale can be certified in one of two ways:

  1. If the scale owner resides in a town with a total population over 5,000, individual(s) are assigned by the town to certify the scale. Contact your town office to determine whom these individual(s) are.
  2. For towns with a total population under 5,000, the Massachusetts Division of Standards certifies scales. The Division of Standards can be reached at (617) 727-3480.
