Maryland wildlife conservation officials are considering the use of fleet tracking via GPS tracking technology to track fishing boats with the goal of reducing maritime poaching (fishing for species not in season).  “Better compliance”  is how one official described the goal of a possible voluntary GPS tracking program.

The possible addition of a GPS tracker program is partially the result of officials uncovering illegal poaching of 13-tons of striped bass which caused disaster for the legal striped bass season.
