Fishing on the Costa Blanca

Information on fishing licences - the permit required to fish off the Costa Blanca coast or in the fresh waters of the region, and information on finding out about the fishing areas, catches and local fishing news...

There is a regional Ministry of the Environment office (Ministerio de Medio Ambiente), which deals with applications for local fishing licences, in Alicante:

On the Costa Blanca, both saltwater and freshwater fishing are widely practised. A fishing fee must be paid to fish in certain areas (pesca de pago); in others, fishing is free (pesca libre).

Beach fishing and fishing from the rocks is possible, however catches are better when fished from a boat.

Freshwater fishing trips, as well as boat rental and deep-sea fishing trips can be arranged.

The rivers on the Costa Blanca contain carp, zander, pike, black bass and barbell. The Amadorio and Guadalest dams are said to be good freshwater fishing spots. As for sea fishing, sea bream, bass, and grey mullet can be found just off the coast, while further out, fishing for mackerel can be done. Tuna can be fished in the autumn and winter.

Underwater fishing

A licence for underwater fishing has to be obtained and is issued by the local authorities. Fishers may use a snorkel tube, mask and mechanical harpoon gun, but underwater fishing with scuba equipment is forbidden.
