What document do I need to go sea fishing?

Anglers also fish in the sea, where regulations other than in the inland waters apply. In general, the rules for sea fishing are simpler. It is important to know that the Fisheries Act distinguishes between three different sea fish areas: the ‘fishing zone’, ‘coastal waters’ and ‘sea area’. Different regulations apply in these areas. 
In the fishing zone, the coastal waters and the sea area, you do not require permission from an entity that holds the rights or a permit for fishing with rods.
