Purchasing a permit

The price of one trap permit is 12 euros.

Trap permits are specific to the fishing or boating party, and they are valid for a calendar year. One must carry the permit and proof of payment when fishing.

Since 2020, trap permit tags are no longer in use. After purchasing a permit, fishers must simply attach their name and phone number to fishing traps, i.e. fishing nets.

Permit terms

Permit terms for the area

Calendar year

Trap permits do not permit the holder to engage in commercial fishing.

Longlines are prohibited within the permit area.

Catch sizes and protection periods

The following minimum catch sizes and protection periods for fish species are in effect for this permit area:

Fish Catch size
Char In Kilpisjärvi Lake at least 60 cm
Trout At least 50 cm
Grayling At least 30 cm

Fishers must observe the catch sizes and protection periods mandated in the Fishing Decree for other fish species.

Catch quotas and catch reports

There is no fishing quota limit for this trap permit area.

Permitted traps

A trap permit entitles the holder to use one of the following traps:

  • one net, whose length is no more than 31 metres
  • 3 traps
  • one long line, with no more than 100 hooks
  • 10 baited lines. However, the permit does not entitle the holder to use a long line.
  • one gig (for gigging), harpoon or fishing bow. A gig, harpoon or fishing bow may not be used in Kilpisjärvi or Naimakkajärvi.

In other words, one trap permit entitles the holder to use only one type of trap at a time. Consequently, one trap permit does not allow, for example, the holding of a net and a trap at the same time – one requires two trap permits for this purpose.

Marking traps

Standing traps must be marked in accordance with the Fishing Decree (1360/2015). The fisherman's name and telephone number must also be entered on traps.

Decree 1360/2015 can be found on the Finlex website ( in Finnish and Swedish.

This Finnish brochure contains photographs and information on marking traps (PDF, 515 kb).

General permit conditions

The permit will not be valid until it has been paid. One must carry the permit and proof of payment when fishing and show them to a supervisor authorised by Metsähallitus, if the supervisor so requests.

The permit holder is the person whose name appears on the permit. The holder is responsible for any fishing done under the permit. One is obligated to establish the legality of the fishing activity.

Trap permits are specific to the fishing or boating party, and they are valid for a calendar year.

The permit entitles the holder to fish in the Metsähallitus waters specified on the water area directory of the permit area and/or on the permit area map. The water area directory is included with the map as a PDF file.

Metsähallitus may revoke the permit if the permit terms are violated.

In addition to the Metsähallitus permit fee, persons aged 18-64 must also pay the state fisheries management fee, unless the fishing being done is angling or ice fishing.
