Do you need a permit if you want to fish in Lloret de Mar?
Unfortunately, it is not allowed to just throw your fishing rod anywhere in Spain. In Spain it is for fishing in the sea as well as in inland waters a regional fishing or angling license (permiso / licencia de pesca) required. In addition, the legislation, permits and opening times of the fishing season vary enormously from region to region. In this article, however, I will limit it to the region of Catalonia.
First of all, it is important to note that in Catalonia you cannot use live bait everywhere, with maximum two rods allowed fishing and recreational fishing prohibited between 21:00 and 06:00 is. However, if you are going with a private charter boat to fish, all necessary permits will of course be arranged for you! There are also private charter boats that offer the possibility to go night fishing!
If you go fishing independently, you can obtain a fishing license for the region of Catalonia at the regional 'Consejeria de Medio Ambiente', but also at local fish shops and in some Caja Rural and Cajamar banks. So you can't just drop your fishing rod anywhere on the coast of the Costa Brava! If you do this, you risk one fine of up to € 1000 and the confiscation of your fishing equipment. Since the costs for a fishing license with a validity of 1 year are less than € 50, it seems to me that the choice is not too difficult!
All information about the necessary fishing licenses can be found at the Spanish Fishermen's Federation. If you want to avoid waiting times, sometimes up to 3-4 working days, during your holiday, you can go online here Apply for a fishing license in advance.
