Apply for, renew licenses online

AUGUSTA — The Maine CDC recommends limiting contact and exhibiting social distancing due to the coronavirus, so access to all Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) facilities in Augusta, West Boothbay Harbor, Bangor, Lamoine, Jonesboro and Rockland are currently by appointment only. 

The department strongly urges industry members to submit applications, order tags, upload documents, report landings, etc. via DMR’s online system. Follow the “Apply for a License” link at If using the system is not possible, documents may be downloaded from the department website and mailed to the address indicated on the document. 

If industry members need to apply for or renew a license or order tags, and can only do so on paper, there are applications and order forms available in the entryway of the Augusta office at 32 Blossom Lane in Augusta. There is also a drop box at the Augusta office where items can be left for DMR, including license applications and order forms. Payment may be by credit card, money order, or check; cash will not be accepted. 

Licensing Division staff can be reached by phone at 207-624-6550, Option 2. Documents may be faxed to the Licensing Division at 207-287-4474 or 207-624-6024.
