The STATE OF DELAWARE will institute a system using what is called a fin number that went into effect Jan. 1. 2009 This number is added to the license for purposes of data recovery for the NMFS
http://www.dnrec.delaware.gov/News/P...FINNumber.aspx
Once all Delaware fishermen have obtained a F.I.N. number and the National Marine Fisheries Service has a copy of Delaware’s saltwater angler registry, Delaware will be exempt from the federal marine recreational fishing registry and future federal registry charges.
The state has also has added this clause to their license that was instituted beginning in 2008, something that other state legislatures should take a hard look at especially if they want to be re-elected.

Other occupants of that vehicle are required to have a fishing license if they are fishing.
A fishing license now covers both fresh and tidal waters, and for the first time, Delaware residents and non-residents fishing tidal waters must be licensed. License cost is the same for residents ($8.50) as in years past, whether fishing fresh or tidal waters, but costs more for non-residents who will fish either.

Default Re: States requiring Saltwater Licenses

Once anglers have registered, they may fish anywhere in U.S. federal waters, or in tidal waters for anadromous species, regardless of the region or regions they specified in their registration. The registration will be valid for one year from its date of issue. Anglers must comply with applicable state licensing requirements when fishing in state waters.
Saltwater anglers will be able to register online or by calling a toll-free telephone number that will be publicized, and will receive a registration certificate. Anglers will need to carry this certificate (or their state license from an exempt state) and produce it to an authorized enforcement officer if requested.
No fee will be charged in 2010.
An estimated fee of $15 to $25 per angler will be charged starting in 2011.
Anglers who fish only on licensed party, charter, or guide boats would not be required to register with NOAA since these vessels are surveyed separately from angler surveys. Those who hold angler permits to fish for highly migratory species, such as tunas or swordfish, and those fishing under commercial fishing licenses will also be exempt. Anglers registered or permitted to fish in a formal state or federal subsistence fishery will also be exempt, as will anglers under 16.
NOAA received nearly 500 comments from anglers, state officials, and fishing and environmental organizations on its proposed national registry rule during the comment period from June 12 until Aug. 21. The registry is one component of the agency’s new Marine Recreational Information Program, an initiative to enhance data collection on recreational catch and effort.

This has been put on hold because it hasn't officially been put into law. I hear it will be sometime in October but that's speculation.

They got this slipped through recently by attaching it to another bill that had already been through all the necessary committees. A little political slight of hand there

Rhode Island's Saltwater license vetoed by Governor Carcieri
Federal Registry will begin in 2011.

Because of Carcieri’s veto, Rhode Island joins Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia and Hawaii in being required to implement federal registrations.
Some of those states are still working on state licensing.

The bill passed, 27 to 8, in the Senate, and 39 to 8 in the House.

The Governor's position is that this component of the Magnuson Act flies in the face of the Rhode Island Constitution.

Hypothetical questions.

If you live in an inland state and fish R.I. or N.J. lets say.
Federal registry counts for where?
Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Hawaii, or only for the state where you purchase the privaledge of Federal registration?
What about the 15 bucks for N.Y. State to fish for the last two months of 2009. Reciprocity with whom? Ct?

These states loose out in Tourism money. For what - 25 bucks?

ANSWERED.

Federal saltwater angler registrations will include an angler’s name, date of birth, address, telephone number, and the regions where they intend to fish. This information will be used by NOAA to conduct surveys on fishing effort and amounts of fish caught. Once anglers have registered, they may fish anywhere in U.S. federal waters, or in tidal waters for anadromous species, regardless of the region or regions they specified in their registration. The registration will be valid for one year from its date of issue. Anglers must comply with applicable state licensing requirements when fishing in state waters.
Saltwater anglers will be able to register online or by calling a toll-free telephone number that will be publicized, and will receive a registration certificate. Anglers will need to carry this certificate (or their state license from an exempt state) and produce it to an authorized enforcement officer if requested. No fee will be charged in 2010. An estimated fee of $15 to $25 per angler will be charged starting in 2011.


Individuals who hold a Highly Migratory Species angling permit, or a state or federal permit to participate in a subsistence fishery program, will be exempt from registering.

Maryland:

Throughout 2009, Maryland will be engaging with fishermen to determine the most efficient way to capture the information on anglers. In addition, Maryland will be working with NOAA to evaluate all exemption options and registry needs. Currently Maryland does not collect the required contact information (angler’s phone number) with a license sale, and several fishing license exemptions (e.g. boat license and coastal fishing) do not comply with the angler registry. We must think creatively about how to capture this information. Legislation will be need to amend Maryland's license system to meet the angler registry needs.

http://dnr.maryland.gov/fisheries/saltwaterAR.html


Virginia:

October 29, 2009: The General Assembly has released a report by the Commission that responds to Senate Joint Resolution 397 pertaining to meeting the requirements of the National Saltwater Angler Registry. The report describes options to allow Virginia to participate in the new National Registry after 2009 by providing saltwater recreational fisherman contact data from a revised saltwater licensing system or through an alternate angler registration system.

This option requires most anglers to purchase the individual saltwater license and would generate approximately $1.2 million in additional license fees and up to $2.0 million in additional federal Sport Fish Restoration Funds.

A second option requires the design and implementation of a state-level registration program and leaves intact the existing state licensing program. The estimated costs to implement this option are $145,000 - $445,000.

SO, since NY implemented it's own license before the Feds could, what does this mean as far as using my NY "saltwater" license in one of the other states?
