Online licensing

AUGUSTA — The Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) encourages all current license holders planning to renew their licenses online to do so before July 16 when the DMR begins transitioning to a new system.

After that date, license holders will need to use paper applications or wait until September to purchase a license or permit with the new online system.

Known as LEEDS (Licensing, Enforcement and Environmental Data System), the new system will provide easy-to-use online tools for license application, renewal and landings reporting. Available 24 hours a day, the system will allow new information to be automatically integrated so license holder data is always up to date.

Starting July 16, the DMR will begin the transition by temporarily disabling the current online license renewal system. The DMR Licensing Division office at 32 Blossom Lane, Augusta, will be closed on July 9, 10 and 20 as the agency transitions to the new system.

License renewals and new applications will be available through the new LEEDS system after the DMR has conducted internal testing in the coming months. The DMR will communicate directly with license holders when the system launch date is confirmed and will include links to the new online LEEDS system.
