Re: salt water license

Augusta, Maine 04333-0021; telephone: (207) 624-6550.

Saltwater angling licenses are not required for recreational saltwater angling. A commercial license is required when any marine species is sold and when more than the recreational bag limits are in possession of the angler. Selling fish without a commercial permit is prohibited. There are regulations covering size, bag limits, possession limits and methods of fishing for, but not limited to the following species: Atlantic Salmon, Atlantic Bluefin Tuna, Sturgeon, Striped Bass, Bluefish, Cod, Haddock, Halibut, Pollack, Redfish, Smelt, Winter/ Summer Flounder, Sharks. Current saltwater fishing information can be obtained by contacting the Recreational Marine Fisheries Program, Maine DMR, PO Box 8, West Boothbay Harbor, ME 04575. Telephone: (207) 633-9500

I hope the governor tells his Dep't of Marine Resources about his new law??????????

Re: salt water license

The Maine license does not go into effect until 2011.

Re: salt water license

Thanks Louis. That makes sense. Then I hope NH, MA, & ME will have the reciprocal agreement I heard about.
