Fishing Licences Can Now Be Purchased Online!

If you LOVE to fish!  You can now purchase their general and salmon sportfishing licences online.

“Sportfishing is a popular past time and thousands of licences are sold every year,” said Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell. “We are modernizing the purchase and delivery of general fishing licences, as well as salmon fishing licences.”

Licence applications are available at: https://beta.novascotia.ca/programs-and-services/sportfishing-licensing

Anglers can continue to purchase sportfishing licences in person, at one of over 200 vendors in the province. A list of private vendors is at https://novascotia.ca/fish/sportfishing/licensing-permits/ .

Disabled anglers wishing to apply for a fishing licence, at no cost, and anglers wishing to replace a lost licence, for a $5.00 fee, plus HST, can only do so at district offices of the Department of Lands and Forestry. A list of offices is at https://novascotia.ca/natr/staffdir/offices.asp
