Fishing

Recreational fishing is allowed in inland waters, rivers and Finland’s sea areas. All fishers must pay the annual fishing management fee to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.

Fishing is restricted in some areas to preserve fish stocks. The restriction may concern a certain area or period of time, such as the spawning season. There may also be restrictions to protect other animals. The use of certain kinds of fishing tackle and fishing methods are prohibited in areas where the Saimaa seal is found, for instance.

The Åland Islands have their own fishing laws. Fishing rights belong to the owner of the water area, and permission is required from the owner of the fishing rights for all types of fishing.
