LUBEC — Andrew Foss, a 10-year veteran of the Maine State Troopers, has joined the ranks of the Maine Marine Patrol. Foss, a lifelong resident of Washington County, was sworn in by Department of Marine Resources Commissioner Patrick Keliher in January and began serving in the Lubec Patrol of Section 6, which stretches from the Hancock Bridge to the Canadian border.
Officer Foss fills a vacancy created by the promotion of Russell Wright to sergeant of Section 3, which runs from the Kennebec River to the St. George River.
Between 1991 and 2005, Foss worked for several aquaculture operations including Maine Pride Salmon, Treats Island Fisheries and Atlantic Salmon of Maine.
“I like working on the ocean, and I feel lucky to have been hired by the Marine Patrol,” said Foss. “Working in Lubec is like going back home.”
