The Annapolis office was opened in the mid-1990’s to provide better coverage to the western shore area of Chesapeake Bay. Annapolis is located 33 miles east of Washington, DC and 30 miles south of Baltimore. It is on US Route 50 which is the major mid-bay crossing and is within 5 miles of Interstate 97. Annapolis is the capital of Maryland and houses the headquarters for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

The Annapolis office is co-located with Ecological Service’s Chesapeake Bay Field Office and the Maryland Fishery Resource Office.

This office has conducted a number cases including a multi-jurisdictional, large scale illegal take and commercialization of striped bass, illegal commercial waterfowl hunting, unlawful migratory bird poisonings, injurious species commercial trade, and eagle mortality investigations. Agents from this office routinely work with state wildlife enforcement officers, other federal agencies, fish and wildlife biologists, industry representatives, and the general public.
