Beware of private online sites selling fishing licenses 

On Monday, June 18, the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries and the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission reminded the public to beware of private online sites that appear to sell state fishing licenses. 

The commission’s website, ncwildlife.org/licensing is the only place online to purchase a North Carolina recreational fishing license. This is true for both inland and coastal fishing licenses. 

The agencies have received complaints about at least three private websites that claim to simplify the license process for different states. Many mistakenly believe they can purchase a license through these sites. 

In addition to the Commission’s website, recreational fishermen may purchase a North Carolina license through many sport shops and bait and tackle stores. Anglers can search for licensed vendors at ncalvin.org/wildlifeserviceagentmvc. 

More information about Coastal Recreational Fishing Licenses can be found on the Division of Marine Fisheries’ website, ncdenr.org/web/mf. Information on coastal commercial fishing licensing can be found at the same website.
