Recreational marine fishing

Recreational fishing is spare time fishing and is considered a non-gainful activity.

Recreational fishing is carried out with a daily or weekly fishing permit and a prescribed fishing equipment and a vessel.

It is important that this type of fishing does not hinder the implementation of industrial fishing. The use of all types of artificial and natural bait is permitted. However, it is not permitted to use living vertebrate and natural baits made of endangered or protected animals.

The membership with fishing societies is not needed to pursue the recreational fishing.
