The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is considering fee increases for hunting and fishing licenses.

A fishing license would increase from $33 to $38.  A hunting license would increase from $21 to $30.  Residents over age 68 - who right now can get a license for free - would have to pay $10.

The fee increases would boost annual Fish and Game revenue by roughly $1 million.

NOAA has also placed limits on recreational haddock fishing.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is working on similar rules for state waters.
