The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) announces that the new “Freshwater Fishing” distinctive license plate is available through county probate offices. This license plate depicts a largemouth bass, the state’s official freshwater fish, and has up to six spaces for optional personalization. It will replace the “Take a Kid Fishing” license plate, which has been in production since 2006.
The cost for the new license plate will be $50 annually. Proceeds from the sale of the license plate will support habitat enhancement, aquatic wildlife species protection and restoration, aquatic education, bass genetic research, sport fish disease research and sport fish stockings.
Please join the effort to fund aquatic wildlife management and protection by acquiring a “Freshwater Fishing” distinctive license plate for your vehicle. If you have any questions regarding the license plate, please contact the Fisheries Section office at (334) 242-3471.
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Patrol, Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries. To learn more about ADCNR, visit
