    Below is an email I sent to VMRC about acquiring a Recreational License
    For Commercial Gear (Gill Net) through mail:

    I am trying to confirm that I can mail to the below address, a check
    for $9 , a photocopy of my drivers license, SS#, and get my *_2008_*
    Recreational License For Commercial Gear (Gill Net) through mail. Or
    is there a form I need to fill out and send in??

    Noticed the license expires 12/31/07.

    Virginia Marine Resources Commission
    30 Jefferson Ave
    Newport News, Va 23607

    VMRC's email: mrcsa@visi.net


    Response from VMRC

    This is correct.
    The copy of the driver's license will be used as the source of where to
    mail the license, as well as to obtain the physical descriptors of the
    licensee.
    Your social security number is needed, and if you currently have a
    license, then please include the 4 digit vmrc id. If you do not have or
    are unable
    to locate this number, then do not worry about it, we can still get you
    processed.

    If you need further assistance, please contact us at 757-247-2265 and we
    will do our best to assist you.

    Thank you,

    VMRC Operations

    That's a lot cheaper that the recreational commercial gear license here in NC. Ours is I believe $35. I've been thinking about using a gill net as well, I just don't know what I'd do with the dang net after I caught all my shad?

    The VMRC called one guy and requested the following additonal info although part of it was on the driver's license so make sure you include it also:
    height, weight, hair color, eye color, Date of Birth along with the info listed above.
