Licenses for Recreational Fishing in Catalonia


If you take a fishing tour the operator will have all the correct licences and you wont need to worry, but if you are planning on fishing on your own (whether inland or marine), you will need to sort out a licence either online or from any fishing tackle shop.

For surface water fishing (inland or sea fishing) you will need a surface waters recreational fishing license (Llicència de pesca recreativa de superfície)

For underwater fishing (you can only snorkel doing this, using scuba diving equipment is not allowed) you need an underwater fishing licence (Llicència de pesca subaquàtica)
