Dar wants a fishing licence...?

Post by kona-ulua-style » Sun Dec 02, 2018 8:45 am

Expect a new bill in 2019 by DAR... They need more money ..by raising funds thru by charging for fishing licences....
No one knows the tire count of shoreline fisherman ..one reason...
Need more funds for research...data ...studies....0114 % of the general fund goes to the state fishes...division..presently..
Expect it to pass...? Guessing $20-$25..for Hawaii outer state maybe $35-$45..?
FYI Your cost will go up..especially for families with many kids...?
Aloha.
--------
We all pay a 10% tax not seen on your receipt...paid by fishing wholesalers pass on to you...Federal tax
This bill was created in 1950..amendment a few times..Funds are dedicated to sport fishing restoration..plus more..
Google :10% Federal fishing tax information sheet...FYI...
Hawaii cannot collect a part of this fund..? Because no fishing licence and other things Hawaii cannot meet certain other requirements...? FYI

My thoughts...If we get a fishing licence...I believe this money will go direct to Dar and other fishing departments..
But expect the general funding to be reduce..? As time goes on...? Because WE...will be funding the difference..? From the fishing licence..money collected..

Has the State ever deliver with more funding..?
What is your thoughts..?

I definitely think that tourist should pay to fish here. Hopefully the revenue from fishing licenses will improve our states ability to protect our fishery.
