Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officials will issue Florida license plates to anyone who pays a $15 registration fee and goes through an in-person inspection.
The new license plates will cost $1,300 and can be used to apply for a fishing license at a public agency or private fisherman.
The new plates will be issued by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation (FWCO) in collaboration with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in an effort to increase public awareness of fishing.
The state has about 2,300 registered fishermen.
The new license plate will allow more people to enjoy Florida waters and fish at public fishing facilities.
A state law passed in 2015 allowed private fishermen to operate fishing licenses for personal use.
However, most Florida fishing licenses are issued for commercial purposes and are not transferable.
Currently, a fishing permit is required to fish in the state.
