Individuals wishing to purchase an Alabama Seafood License, including all saltwater commercial licenses, as well as saltwater recreational gill net and shrimping licenses, now need to provide additional information before a purchase can be made. Applicants must provide a valid Social Security number for the licensee; for businesses, the Federal Tax Identification Number will suffice. The collection of this information is required as part of both state and federal mandates. In addition, the date of birth or date of incorporation of the licensee will be required. If an individual cannot provide this information, they will not be able to purchase a license.
