Apply for a Permit

Do you need a Permit?

D&S IFCA issues permits to manage different fishing activities. These include:

  • Mobile Fishing (Trawling, Scallop Dredging & Ring Netting)
  • Potting
  • Netting
  • Diving for crab, lobster and scallops.

If you conduct these fishing methods either commercially or recreationally, you need to have a permit.

Our on-line facility allows you to apply for and pay for a permit that will then be processed by D&S IFCA, normally within seven working days.

Incorrect information can delay this process.

Alternatively, please contact the office on 01803 854648 or email the Permitting Officer o.pepper@devonandsevernifca.gov.uk to arrange for an application form to be sent to you.
