The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries says it will close the Washington license sales office for an indefinite period on April 4
The license clerk position in the office is vacant due to a recent retirement.
Recreational fishermen may purchase licenses online at the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission website or from an N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission service agent.
Commercial fishermen may renew their licenses at any time at one of the other Division of Marine Fisheries license offices or through the mail.
Commercial fishermen can also call the Morehead City division headquarters to request an application packet.
