This country offers countless fishing opportunities, both for freshwater and sea fishing.
Sea fishing is much easier in Norway. Personal fishing offshore, in fjords or at sea does not require a permit, but is subject to only a few common sense rules. For example, when fishing, you must be at least 100 meters from the fish farm, it is difficult to catch certain protected species, other fish species have a minimum size and smaller pieces must be released immediately, catches cannot be sold, a maximum of 18 kg of fish can be exported. Species of fish: cod, flounder and other flatfish, haddock, mackerel, halibut, wolffish, sea trout, coalfish, tusk (brosme), hake, plaice,
Thanks to the crystal clear lakes, rivers and streams, freshwater fishing is also very attractive and you have a great chance to try it when visiting Norway. The main season runs from May to the end of summer. During this time, you will find local water resources full of healthy fish waiting for you when you throw the rod.
To do this, you will need a fishing license from the fishing rights owner, which is usually the landowner. These licenses are valid for a specific area or for a specific time, so you will need to plan ahead where you go before purchasing a license, or you will need to purchase another license for the area in which you are located.
Prices vary depending on the license.
It also depends on what catch you are interested in. If you want to catch migratory fish such as salmon, trout, or artic charr, you will have to pay an additional fee. This fee goes to the sustainability fund of these fish species. Proof of payment of this fee must be kept.
