Operation Game Thief
Maine OGT is a private, non-profit organization that works with the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Warden Service to pay rewards to citizens who turn in poachers. Rewards of up to $1,000, based on severity, are paid for information that leads to the arrest or summons being issued for a fish or wildlife violation.
Rewards of up to $2,000 are paid for information that leads to the arrest or summons being issued to individuals unlawfully introducing non-native fish species into Maine's waters.
In all cases, the caller remains anonymous, does not have to reveal their names or testify in court.
