The 22 October 1870 edition of The Cecil Whig reports from a meeting in Baltimore on a move to create an executive committee to support enforcement of a state law forbidding the shooting of wild fowl from sink-boats. The report makes plain the group interested enforcing the law own land on the shores of said water. The group sought and appears to have succeeded in enlisting the help of the Maryland Oyster Police Force or “Oyster Navy” to enforce the sink-boat law. Interestingly, The Oyster Police Force is the predecessor to the Maryland Natural Resources Police and were originally commissioned to help cope with Oyster poaching from outside states which is generally known as the Oyster Wars.
