DURHAM, NH – The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, the New Hampshire Department of Safety-Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and the New Hampshire Division of Ports and Harbors (DPH) will hold two licensing events this winter to provide the commercial fishing industry with a single-stop opportunity to obtain their annual commercial fishing licenses, mooring and pier use permits, and vessel registrations all at one location.
These two licensing days will both be held at the Dover DMV Office, 50 Boston Harbor Road, Dover, NH, on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Tuesday, January 7, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Please note the following:

  • Only a check or exact change will be accepted for the purchase of commercial fishing licenses and DPH permits. Credit/debit cards will not be accepted.
  • Commercial licenses with reporting requirements will not be issued if reporting is not up to date.
  • If you have received your current boat registration renewal notice, please bring it with you. If you have not, you will need your current boat registration and a valid photo ID.

Similar days have been held since the 2014 licensing year with great success. We look forward to working with our partner agencies to bring this convenience to New Hampshire’s commercial fishing industry again this year.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state’s marine, fish and wildlife resources and their habitats. The Department’s Marine Fisheries Division is located in Durham, N.H. Visit
