Eighteen Million Dollars
Here is one take on the Coastal Resource Fishing License and the revenue that it will create for the state of North Carolina. The cost will be $15 per year for residents and $30 a year for non-residents or you can get a 10 day permit for $10 and $15 respectively. "If 79% of all anglers purchase the annual license and 7.4% purchased the one-week license, $18 million in new revenues would be available to fund fisheries management programs." FYI - Until now, North Carolina was the only state on the South East coast not to have a recreational salt water license.
