New DNR Website for People Seeking to Buy or Sell a Commercial Fishing License
10/28/2013 | Posted by ghuntTags: commercial
In response to public comments received during the license renewal period, the Department has developed a new website to put buyers and sellers of commercial fishing authorizations in touch with each other. The page is provided as a convenience and simply provides the name, contact information, and authorization. No prices will be listed. No permission for the transfer is expressed or implied by the Department by listing the contact information. All transfer rules remain in effect. Remember, an authorization has to be valid (renewed) and previously held for at least 24 months before it can be sold. Before you purchase an authorization, you should verify that the authorization is valid with the Department.
To sign-up or find out more, visit the Commercial Fishing Authorization website at dnrweb.dnr.state.md.us/fisheries/comlicense/register.asp.
