Fishers have been significantly more scrupulous in paying the statutory fisheries management fee than last year. This year, people from Lapland, Kainuu and North Karelia have paid the most in fisheries management fees in proportion to the population. People from Uusimaa paid relatively the smallest amount in fisheries management fees, but the most in volume.
Hunters and fishers are expected to observe the new Outdoor etiquette in Metsähallitus fishing waters and hunting areas in the future. The Outdoor etiquette emphasises respect for the catch or game, nature, and other people enjoying nature. Approximately 200,000 hunting and fishing permits are purchased for state-owned areas each year.
One permit for thousands of fishing areas – the 2019 fisheries management fees are now available for payment
The fisheries management fee is an excellent investment in fishing waters and fishing – and it’s also a great gift idea for Father’s Day or Christmas. You can pay your fisheries management fee at authorised outlets: the Metsähallitus web store, permit service points, the permit service number at +358 20 69 2424, and all R-kioski shops in Finland.
