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 to arrange for an application form to be sent to you.
