There are various kinds of shore fishing licences for pensioners, depending on where you’re fishing in Spain. Each autonomous government of the different regions has different rules. Here is a list of regions where pensioners are treated fairly, and the different fees:
- Regular Fee: Pensioners are treated just like everyone else, and need to pay the full price. This happens in the Canary Islands.
- Free: Anyone over 65 years is entitled to these. Applicants must show up in person, at the fishing offices. The regions where they treat pensioners great are the Balearic Islands, and Catalunya.
- Lifetime: The difference between “free” and “lifetime” licences is that the “lifetime” ones need a one-time payment. The areas where this happens are:
- Comunidad Valenciana, where you have to be at least 60 years old and apply in person.
- In Murcia, you need to be over 65 years old, to get this type of licence.
Once a pensioner gets his free licence, he or she can fish all along the Spanish coastline. Rules and regulations of each area need to be followed (fishing areas, minimum fish sizes, banned species, maximum weight of all you can fish in a day, etc.).
If you’re unable to visit the fishing office in person, we can get the job done for you. We are currently taking an administrative fee of 9.99 euros. Our Spanish fishing licences for pensioners take around a day to process and are sent by e-mail.
