The Town of Brunswick issues both commercial and recreational shellfish licenses to Brunswick residents and non-residents. View the Brunswick Shellfish Ordinance.
Recreational Shellfish Licenses are available to residents and nonresidents. The license is good for a one-year period beginning the first Monday in April. The resident license cost is $50, but free for those 62 years of age and older. The cost for a non-resident shellfish license is $75, but free for those 62 years of age and older.
Applicants must appear in person to fill out an application. Note that the number of available licenses is set annually; non-resident licenses are issued at a rate of one for every ten sold to residents, and the non-resident must get on a waiting list by applying in person at the Town Clerk's office.
Commercial Licenses require a Letter of Intent Application; for more information on the commercial license process, please contact our office at 207-725-6658.
