License needed for sea fishing in Turkey?

Hi,

Can anybody clarify in simple terms whether I need a license as a tourist to do a bit of sea fishing in Turkey.

Cheers

John

Re: License needed for sea fishing in Turkey?

Hi John..the simple answer is NO..as a tourist you dont need a licence to sea fish

you do need to be very careful though..have a look at this threadabout a near miss a week ago in the sea off Alanya

Re: License needed for sea fishing in Turkey?

Fishing can be done without a license in non-prohibited and non-military areas as long as you're an amateur, using amateur and non-commercial equipment, multi-hooked lines, and fishing nets not weighing more than 5 kilograms. Commercial fishing by foreigners might result in heavy penalties. Latest details concerning fishing zones, the minimum sizes of fish that can be caught, and the numbers of fish that can be caught per person, can be obtained from the Department of Fisheries at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

Re: License needed for sea fishing in Turkey?

not really..youre an amateur fisherman on holiday for one or two weeks
My husbad takes people out sea fishing...even had three local policemen when they had the accident last week...and they didnt have licenses.
At the end of the day presumably you will be going with a Turkish person who does it for a living..so i wouldnt worry.

Re: License needed for sea fishing in Turkey?

We simply reported what a reader experienced and was told by officials here. I have heard two others experience along the same lines. So, are we wrong to put the information out there to the public or are the officials wrong. What is clear, certainly in Didim, is that the law is not clear!
