Notice to Commercial Fishermen and Seafood Dealers
December 28, 2011
As you know, fishing and dealer license applications for 2012 were mailed last week. We understand that many fishermen have not yet received their applications and the new fishing year is just a few days away. Those applications should arrive in the mail this week. Applications are also available at Marine Headquarters in Old Lyme, and at DEEP Licensing in Hartford. Application forms will also be available at the Stonington Town Dock Office today. We apologize for any inconvenience this delay in delivery may cause. Fishermen and dealers holding valid 2011 licenses and permits may continue to operate through January 15 with their 2011 licenses/permits.
Please mail the completed form(s) as soon as possible with a check for the required amount to:
New for 2012: Connecticut has developed a new licensing computer system.
Reminder to Seafood Dealers:
All individuals or firms who purchase for resale, any lobsters, crabs including horseshoe crabs, squid, sea scallops, and finfish from commercial fishermen, landed in Connecticut including federally permitted dealers, must obtain a Connecticut Seafood Dealer’s license.
