Fishing Licenses and Permits

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

Licenses and permits are issued by the State of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

They can be purchased online at the FWC site, and are also available at the Tax Collector's Office as well as subagents (for example, a sporting goods store or a retailer selling fishing equipment).

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

For license and permit fees or additional information, read more at the FWC site.
