License to Manage

Record #:
Beginning on January 1, 2007, most anglers who fish in coastal and ocean waters of the state must have a new Coastal Recreational Fishing License. Previously, North Carolina was the last state in the Southeast without a recreational saltwater license. Saltwater fishing is big business in the state with over a million people fishing each year. The new license will aid the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries in collecting crucial data to help the agency better manage fish stocks.
