Massachusetts Environmental Police seize catch at Fairhaven dock


“On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, Fairhaven Police Department notified Massachusetts Environmental Police Officers that a possible ‘for hire’ trip had left a marina in Fairhaven with clients from Connecticut aboard.

Environmental Police Officers observed the vessel return to a dock in Fairhaven at approximately 12:00 p.m. A subsequent inspection of the vessel and catch found that the Captain did not possess a valid Massachusetts DMF Charter Permit and the permit he did offer was for a different vessel.

The Captain faces numerous fishing violations and will appear in court at a later date. The 250-pound catch of scup was seized and donated to the New Bedford Salvation Army.”-Massachusetts Environmental Police.
