What is a RIHFID?
RIHFID stands for Rhode Island Hunting and Fishing ID. All customers of the new hunting and fishing system will be assigned their own unique number - your RIHFID. Your RIHFID will be printed on your license no matter where it is purchased - online or at an agent. If you purchased a 2017 or 2018 Saltwater License you already have a RIHFID; just click the "Find your RIHFID Number" button to retrieve it.
