Restrictions

Brought to you by:

Sale prohibited

Seaweed, rockweed or sea moss of N.H. origin may not be sold outside the state. Softshell clams and oysters of N.H. origin, striped bass regardless of origin, and quahogs, littlenecks and cherrystones (Mercenaria mercenaria) less than 1 inch in shell thickness cannot be sold.

It is unlawful to:

  • import any living marine plant or animal for release without a permit;
  • set a net so it extends beyond the thread of the stream. The thread of stream means the center of the main channel;
  • set a net within 1,000 feet of another net, measured along the thread of the stream;
  • take lobsters by diving, angling, spearing or dipping;
  • dump dead or injured fish or fish parts within bays, rivers, harbors or upon the shores. This does not restrict the use of fish or fish parts for chum or bait, nor the releasing of dead or injured undersized fish taken by angling;
  • be on a fishway without permission;
  • take salmon or striped bass by netting, except when landing by use of hand-held dip nets;
  • take finfish, horseshoe crabs, American eels or other species for commercial purposes (excluding lobster/crab) without obtaining a harvest permit, as further specified on the Coastal Harvest page.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

Prohibition

It is unlawful to throw, dump, destroy or otherwise dispose of any fish, lobsters, crabs, or shellfish when a Conservation Officer has informed a person his boat, motor vehicle, wharf, dock or landing, or contents thereof, are about to be inspected. The same applies to any pot, trap, car, or any other receptacle used to catch or store lobsters or crabs. Any person who refuses or attempts to refuse to stand by for such inspection is guilty of a misdemeanor. Any lobsters or crabs, thrown or dumped or caused to be thrown or dumped, are prima facie evidence they were illegally taken. A person is guilty of a violation for each lobster or crab thrown or dumped.

Charter & Party Boat Operators: Please Note

Operators of vessels with a NH party or charter boat license operating in coastal and estuarine waters of the state are exempt from the need to obtain a NH Guide license if:

  1. They possess a US Coast Guard-issued Master License or “6-pack” license, and
  2. They or a crew member on board the vessel has current certification (with practical exam) in basic first aid and CPR.

Regulations in red are new this year.
