Other Commercial Licenses

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 license regulations are not intended to create any property right in anyone, and the Commission reserves the right to change regulations 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.

The physical transfer of any license must be approved by the Marine Resources Commission. When you are ready to proceed with the physical transfer of a license call (757) 247-2248, for information on how to proceed with the legal transfer.  Note that as of 2009, some inactive crab licensees have been put on a waiting list and are not eligible to purchase an active crab license - make sure when you plan to obtain a transferred crab license that the license will be authorized to actively crab and is not "wait listed" (this should also be checked by MRC personnel when you do the official transfer).

If you are a VA registered commercial fisherman and wish to be added to this list, email the information you wish to post to web.info@mrc.virginia.gov . You must include your  commercial registration number.  Items more than one year old will be automatically removed; if you would like your information removed from the list earlier please send an email to the address above.

Information is posted in reverse chronological order.
