Hook-and-Line License for Sale


The following is a list of Registered Commercial Fishermen who wish to purchase a commercial hook-and-line license. Fishermen, who currently hold an active commercial hook-and-line license and wish to sell, may contact those listed.

DISCLAIMER: The persons selling and purchasing licenses are responsible for their own terms and conditions. The VMRC will not participate in any negotiations between the two parties. The regulation (4 VAC 20-995-10 et seq.) is not intended to create any property right in anyone, and the Commission reserves the right to change this regulation at any time it deems it necessary because of biological conditions, and to change the regulation in all other respects at any time it deems it necessary to carry out its statutory mission. Click to view 4 VAC 20-995-10 et seq., "Pertaining to Commercial Hook-and-Line Fishing".

Any person licensed for commercial hook and line may transfer such license to any registered commercial fisherman, provided that the transferee shall have documented, through the Commission's mandatory harvest reporting program, the sale of at least 1000 pounds of seafood during the course of the previous two years. Transfer of licenses between family members shall be exempt form this requirement. No commercial hook-and-line license shall be transferred more than once per calendar year.

The physical transfer of the license must be approved by the Marine Resources Commission. When you are ready to proceed with the physical transfer of the license call (757) 247-2248, for information on how to proceed with the legal transfer.
