Fishing license

Is it necessary to buy a fishing license for Caye Caulker. I have fished the Belize cayes extensively and have never even heard of a Belize fishing license. Not one guide has ever mentioned a license.

I think its new as of 1 or 2 years ago. And as i understand it - all the $$$ raised from this goes to conservation.

My husband fishes Ambergris and gets his license from Tres Pecadaro fly shop.

Thanks for the license info. I notice Illinois on your address. We are originally from Elmhurst and Rogers Pk area of Chicago.

Yes you need a license if you are going to fish by boat (not for shore fishing or shore wading or if you are over 65 years old) I believe you can buy them at the airport. US$10 per day, US$25 per week. Should be available from your hotel, fishing guide, maybe the BTIA office, I am not sure where in CC. But you definitely should have one, and yes, the money goes to the Fisheries Department for conservation.

John - we are near Oak Lawn, IL which is a southwest suburb of Chicago. And I hope to one day have my screen name say 418 Belize!

I dont think anyone actually checks for the fishing license. But if its going to conservation - why no just buy it!
