Buy Plate Now

When you buy a Fish Florida license plate you will be helping kids learn to cast, students study marine research and fishing clubs teach fishing clinics.


Fish Florida’s funding comes from the Fish Florida specialty license plate, featuring Florida’s saltwater fish – the sailfish. Anglers, boaters, and many others buy the Fish Florida plate to show their dedication to the future of fishing.

Since its founding in 1998, Fish Florida has helped tens of thousands of children participate in fishing clinics throughout Florida. You can help, too! For every license plate sold, Fish Florida receives $22.00. We use this money to give fishing equipment and grants to Florida fishing education programs and to give scholarships to marine and aquatic science students.

Your money goes to kids’ fishing programs, grants and scholarships. Fish Florida spends at least 80% of its license plate revenue on our programs. Your sailfish plate helps fishing and conservation programs in Florida. THANK YOU!

Over the past 5 years, funds from the sailfish license plate have supported:

  • 523 kids fishing clinics, donating 96,000 rods and reels so kids can learn to fish
  • 22 Scholarships ($65,000) to marine science students
  • 118 Grants ($423,000) to programs teaching fishing and conservation to Florida families
