Here is the new deal on fishing license. The charter part is a single license BUT must have each anglers name on it (they aren't asking for addresses & phone #'s). The charges are also a little different than shown. Each port can charge as they feel. Guaranteed somebody is going to have to buy one. It was a little slow in coming to ZIH but is now in full swing:

For people fishing on charter sportfishing boats, the law was changed in 1998. No longer will the charters have one (1) license that covers everyone fishing on the charter. Each person must have in their possession a fishing license issued my the Mexican Fisheries Department. You can get that from the Mexico Fisheries office in the city you are fishing at. A fishing license is also required for underwater spearfishing.

Fishing licenses are issued for periods of one week, one month, and one year, effective at 12:01 am on the starting date specified on the license application. The prices for Mexican fishing licenses are as follows - (they change frequently, often without notice):

Daily License - $8.00 Average in Mexico
Weekly License - $19.60
Monthly License - $28.05
Annual License - $36.60

All prices are in US Dollars. These licenses are not transferable, and each license must include the person's full legal name, home address, and telephone number.
