Anglers fishing in Massachusetts coastal waters within 3 miles of shore are reminded that they must purchase a state saltwater license.

The saltwater license is available to both residents and non-residents at a cost of $10. Anyone who is under 16, who is disabled, or who is fishing aboard a chartered vessel is not required to purchase a permit.

The fee is waived for those over 60, but a permit is still required (registration can be done online). Anglers who hold a saltwater license from New Hampshire are exempt as well.
