If you see me, I may be tied up.

And if you need me, you may want me around a pup.

If you're suicidal, I might be adorned.

And if I touch you, you might become burned.

I'm associated with licorice,

Yet just as often seen with fish.

What am I?

The answer is one word.

I think the answer may be

Rope

If you see me, I may be tied up.

Rope is often tied up/around objects.

And you need me, you may want me around a pup.

This may be a reference to dog rope or the fact that some dog leashes are made from rope.

If you're suicidal, I might be adorned.

Possible reference to a noose.

And if I touch you, you might become burned.

Rope Burn

I'm associated with licorice,

Super Ropes

Yet just as often seen with fish.

Fishing nets are often knitted with rope. This is also perhaps a reference to a rope fish
