    Does anyone know of a guide for edible sea fish that I might (hopefully!:Laughing:) catch off the rocks or inshore via canoe on the Costa Blanca

    if using your canoe for fishing in Spain, I believe that it's traditional to paddle all the way into British territorial waters before casting your line!!! :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    It's a bit like eating wild Mushrooms, if you are not sure, try them out on the Wife first:RollEyes:

    You will be lucky to find any fish in Spanish waters. Have seen a few going through the motions of fishing from rocks but have never seen them catch anything.

    no fishing licence required yet for sea fishing. As to edible fish they all are its just a matter of taste.

    AFAIK anything you'll catch on a rod you can eat, though some fish 'innards' can be poisonous. In any doubt local knowledge is always best:thumb: Tight lines:BigGrin:

    I know that blue lobsters are very dangerous to eat and need controlled disposal. If you catch any send them to me, I will get rid of them for you.

    Its only the red one you can eat.

    If you catch to many for Peter to dispose of send the rest to me as I also have a lobster disposal license.

    Sorry Roger you do need a licence for sea fishing in Spain either from the shoreline or from a small boat called a Licencia de Pesca - Maritima de Recreo. There is no national licence, they are administered by the local authority to the area you want to fish

    Cheers maggie, now I've heard it all
    the ocean is free and only commercial fishermen should be licenced. What is the world coming to. A licence to breath next. Ah well I doubt I'll ever be back in Spain.
