Fish Buying, Processing and Peddling Licenses

All buyers of fish and shellfish must obtain a license on an annual basis. These licenses must be obtained on a species or species group basis at each port where the buyer purchases the product. All processors must obtain a processing license on an annual basis. Peddlers must also obtain a license yearly.

Fish buying licences are broken down into six categories: lobster, groundfish, pelagic, mollusc, other crustaceans and other fish
