DNREC goes live with enhanced online electronic recreational fishing license sales system

DOVER – Anglers who have purchased recreational fishing licenses and freshwater trout stamps, or exempt anglers who obtained free Fisherman Information Network (FIN) numbers directly from DNREC’s website in the past will now benefit from an updated, more user-friendly version of the electronic fishing license sales system, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today. The enhanced fishing license sales system can be accessed online at Recreational Fishing Licenses.

The recreational fishing license sales system is part of DNREC’s new ePermitting system, which involves customers establishing a user profile usable for a variety of DNREC licensing and permitting opportunities. Online fishing license sales system enhancements include a more modern look and feel using an improved customer interface and a familiar shopping cart approach, along with full compatibility for a variety of mobile devices to include smartphones and tablets in addition to personal computers, including Apple products.

Recreational fishing licenses can also be purchased at the licensing office in DNREC’s Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, and at license agents statewide, where the previous license sales system will be used until the transition to the new electronic fishing license sales system is completed during the upcoming months.
