Be aware that visitors to The Bahamas need to have a Sportsfishing Permit if they are fishing from a vessel not Bahamian owned. Bag limits and other rules can be found in our FAQ and our Regulation Summary sections but they may change as our information grows and changes. To ensure you have the most current Sports fishing Regulations (PART X of the Subsidiary Legislation), please contact the DEPARTMENT OF MARINE RESOURCES DIRECTLY.
