Default Re: The Saltwater License and why its coming.

As of January 20, 2010 - 19 of the 23 Coastal States require licensing.

The ones that don't are.

Maine, New Hampshire and New Jersey are the last three regional states without the license requirements. Alaska is the other.
Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands also haven't complied.

Is there a plan for New Hampshire to have a state saltwater license, so that registry fees paid by anglers would go the state instead of to the federal government?
A saltwater license was approved this year by the NH State Legislature and signed by the Governor. The license will go into effect January 1, 2011, and will cost $15 for residents and non-residents.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
