National fishing management fee

All fishers between 18 and 64 years of age must pay the national fishing management fee. This can be paid either for a week (€7/week) or for a calendar year (€24/year). The national fishing management fee is available at authorized sales offices (e.g. R-kioski and Kuusamo Info, Metsähallitus Nature Services Customer Service Point). The fee can be paid by a bank transfer directly to the account of Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The fisher must be able to show a receipt of the payment at all times
when fishing.

 

It is possible to pay the national fishing management fee online at www.mmm.fi

 

Provincial lure fishing licence

Provincial lure fishing licence applies to lakes and ponds (not to running waters). Like the national fishing management fee, the appropriate provincial fishing licence can be paid for a week or a year (€7/week or €31/year). In Kuusamo, the Oulu provincial fishing licence is required. The licence entitles fishers of 18-64 years of age to the use of one rod, reel and lure at a time.

 

Both the national fishing management fee and the provincial fishing licence are available at R-kioski!

The local fishing permit can be either a permission granted by a local fishery collective or an integrated permit (covering the area of several fishery collectives and/or water areas belonging to other holder of the fishing right).

No littering! 

 

A considerate fisherman leaves only fishing stories to the riverside.

He carries his rubbish back to civilization.
