An unprecedented number of fisheries management fees for 2020, more than 290,000, were paid during the current Fishing Act. The profit increased by more than EUR 1.5 million compared to the previous year. Fisheries management fees for 2021 have also been paid more by now than at the beginning of previous years.
Fishing and hunting experiences in Finland
The waters and lands owned by the Finnish state are there for you to use. Metsähallitus ensures that people who would otherwise not have access to wilderness opportunities may also enjoy them. The game and fisheries staff organises all hunting, fishing and off-road traffic in state-owned areas on a sustainable basis, and our game and fisheries wardens supervise all wilderness activities on state-owned lands. When you purchase a wilderness permit, you invest in Finnish nature; the proceeds are used to benefit the environment.
The Fisheries management fee for 2021 can now be paid - a gift idea that brings well-being to increasing numbers of Finns
The fisheries management fee for 2021 came on sale in early November. Many people took up fishing for the first time this past summer, and revenue from the fisheries management fees has exceeded EUR 10 million. Metsähallitus encourages people to ensure the continuity of this hobby that brings people close to nature by paying the fisheries management fee as a gift for Father's Day and Christmas, thereby giving the right to fish through the entire new calendar year.
This summer, fishing attracted interest from people of all ages - revenues from fisheries management fees already EUR 10 million
The revenue from fisheries management fees earned this year exceeded EUR 10 million at the beginning of September. According to a Metsähallitus survey, the increase in revenues is the result of both an increase in the number of anglers and the higher payment activity of those who had previously fished.
