The Alabama Marine Resources Division manages Alabama's marine fisheries resources with assessment and monitoring, applied research, and enforcement programs. The Division offices are located in Gulf Shores and Dauphin Island. Fishing licenses can be purchased at both locations or online.
Each year, the Marine Resources Division publishes a tide calendar. The calendars are available at many outdoor retailers in Baldwin and Mobile counties, at the Marine Resources offices in Dauphin Island and Gulf Shores, and is also available to download.
