Per the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries, no permit is required for the taking of blue crabs unless using SCUBA. There is a limit of 25 crabs/day. The minimum harvest size is 5 in shell width (spine to spine). Egg bearers cannot be taken. It is unlawful to fish for blue crabs by trap to retain blue crabs taken in a trap. Only actively tended gear may be fished for blue crabs.
