MyFWC.com, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's website, provides information on the licenses and permits necessary to fish the state's fresh and saltwater waters. Licenses and permits for both resident and nonresident anglers can also be purchased through a portal on this website.
Thorough examination should be given to all of the rules and regulations listed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. A large variety of requirements exist depending on the type of water that is being fished and species caught; many require an extra permit. The only permits not available for purchase online are Tarpon tags; these must be purchased at select county tax collector's offices.
