Argued January 17, 1977

Decided May 23, 1977

Syllabus

Where it appears that there may be a statutory basis for providing relief to respondent owner of a federally enrolled and licensed fishing vessel against enforcement of a Massachusetts statute prohibiting nonresidents from dragging for fish by beam or otter trawl in Vineyard Sound during certain months, Douglas v. Seacoast Products, Inc., ante p. 431 U. S. 265, this Court will not decide the question presented as to the constitutionality of the statute.

344 N.E.2d 411, vacated and remanded.
