Default Fishing licence

My husband needs a boat fishing licence. He asked the Guardia Civil and they told him to do it online, pay online and print off the licence yourself. Has anyone got a link to the appropriate website please, as he has had a few problems finding the right website?

Found this online
"A fishing license is required in Majorca for anyone of 14 years or over. However, any chartered fishing trips will be covered by a 'collective' or 'boat' license, thus you will not need to purchase a license yourself."

If he still does need one the webpage is as follows

"You can also order your license online at dgpesca.caib.es. It can take up to 1 month for the license to be issued this way and you will still need to collect it in person from the office, remembering to take your ID with you.

In order to get a license you will need to provide some form of identification. For Spanish residents this can be your DNI or NIE, for tourists your passport is accepted. Your fishing license will make reference to your DNI, NIE or passport. When you are fishing you must carry both your license and the ID you used to obtain the license. This enables the authorities to cross check your fishing license with the photo ID in order or make sure the license belongs to you (i.e. to prevent multiple people using the same license)."

Hope this helps

A member has kindly sent me the following information :-

This link to a website https://www.caib.es/seucaib/es/tramites/tramite/98088.

However he advises that it's best to go to Inca, here is the address :-
Carrer Selleters, 07300 Inca, Illes Balears it's the Ministry of Agriculture and Fishing.

I should also point out that this is only necessary if it's for his own boat, if he is going on an organised boat fishing trip the boat owner will already have the license.
