Recreational Fishing Tournament License to Sell Fish

The Recreational Fishing Tournament License to Sell Fish is a license available to fishing tournaments that sell fish and requires the designation of a tournament organizer. Proceeds from the sale of fish must be used for charitable, religious, educational, civic or conservation purposes - proceeds from the sale of fish cannot be used to pay for tournament expenses. This license is required for tournaments that sell fish plates or provide free fish plates to tournament participants.

The sale of fish from a tournament must be to a licensed fish dealer - the tournament organizer may wish to purchase a Fish Dealer’s License. The tournament organizer must apply 30 days before the tournament for this license. After the tournament, the designated organizer must submit a disposition of the tournament catch to the Division of Marine Fisheries. This license cannot be transferred or assigned.

Expiration Date: Effective for 7 days from date of issue.
