The Virginia Marine Resources Commission is creating a registry of saltwater anglers.

The Virginia Fisherman Identification Program requires anglers who are exempt from buying a saltwater fishing license to register and supply their contact information annually. Anglers who do purchase a saltwater fishing license will be registered automatically.

With the creation of the state registry, all Virginia adult saltwater anglers will need either a valid saltwater fishing license or to register with the Fisherman Identification Program before they go saltwater fishing each year.

Anglers with a valid Virginia saltwater fishing license, or a Potomac River Fisheries Sport Fishing License, don’t have to register with the FIP. Their information will be collected when they buy a license. Those younger than 16 also are exempt, as are paying customers of licensed charter boats.
