Buy a Salmon Fishing Licence

From: Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment

Facility to buy salmon and sea trout licences. Anglers are legally required to be in possession of a licence when fishing for salmon or sea trout.

A licence does not confer the right to fish for salmon or sea trout and that permission or permits are required to fish most waters. On purchasing a licence anglers receive a copy of the Salmon Angling Regulations, which provides information on bag limits, mandatory catch and release fisheries, open and closed fisheries, gill tags and how to return your completed logbook and tags.

Licences can be purchased for periods from one day to one year.
