Fishing License

There are two types of fishing licenses: freshwater and saltwater. Each one has certain restrictions for the type of fish you can take. Combination licenses and different commercial freshwater fishing licenses are also available.

Licenses and permits are issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). They can be bought at the FWC website, at the Tax Collector's office, places such as sporting goods stores or hunting and fishing equipment retailers, or by calling 1-888-486-8356.

Fishing licenses are regulated by the state of Florida, with fees for licenses and permits set by the Florida Legislature.

For license and permit fees or additional information, read more on the FWC website.
