Licenses for amateur fishing are extended

Regularization

Authorizations for activity such as sport or leisure have two validities: December and April of next year

The amateur fishermen will have more time to carry out the activity, with the issuance of an ordinance from the Fisheries Secretariat that extended the validity of amateur licenses until December 2017, to those issued in 2016, and April of next year, for which were dispatched this year.

This is because faults in the licensing system made it difficult to issue documents. Fishing activity in Brazil is permitted as a sport or recreation, but for that, it is necessary to acquire the authorization of the Government of Brazil, through the General Register of the Fishing Activity (RGP).

The definitive document, once issued, is valid for one year, and is released after payment of a fee ranging from $ 20 to $ 60. The provisional license is valid for one month. The request can be made through the page of the Secretariat .

The Brazilian Environment Institute (Ibama) and the environmental police are responsible for overseeing the activity. Whoever is caught fishing without the license is subject to the authorities' assessment.
