If you have a boat and are looking to go fishing in Puerto Peñasco, getting a permit is not difficult though be sure to follow these steps:
– First go to the Fiscal Agency, located at the corner of Luis Encinas & No Reeleccion. At the last window inside (also for driver’s licenses), you will be asked to show a photo I.D. with your complete name. There they will complete the appropriate documentation entitled “Anuencia para Expedición de Permiso de Asociaciones de Caza, Tiro y Pesca por Socio” (Express agreement to issue permit to hunting, shooting, and fishing associations by partnership”. This document will validate your fishing activities in compliance with CONAPESCA (fishing authorities).
Costs vary depending on length of permit (*prices valid as of July 2018):
* 1 day: 140 pesos
* 1 week: 350 pesos
* 1 month: 525 pesos
* 1 year: 700 pesos
