UK commercial fishing licences explained
26th August 2015
Commercial fishing licences are not all the same
Understanding your UK commercial fishing licence, what is allowed and what is required by law, is very important. It can also be quite complicated and varies form region to region around the UK. For that reason, we are not going to try and explain everything but will provide a link to the UK Marine management organisation guidance.
Licences are divided into two sizes - under 10m and over 10 m
All under ten metre licences are Category A.
Over ten metre licences can be Category A, Category B or Category C.
This is covered in detail in the Government website:
