The Nantucket Inquirer & Mirror reports that jigging for squid has again been banned from the Nantucket Harbor Town Pier after an increase in complaints this summer about trespassing and property damage from ink on the docks and boats tied up at the pier.

The pier will be patrolled by members of the harbormaster’s office or police department during the evening hours.
