The County Administrative Board works for viable fishery resources, a long-term and sustainable fishing industry and rich and diverse sporting and recreational fishing.
Fish conservation strengthens fisheries
In order to restore and preserve viable fishery resources, the County Administrative Board supports a large number of fish conservation projects. We allocate government conservation grants for fisheries, fishing license grants and EU grants, to be used for fish conservation measures.
We review applications for permission for planting fish and crayfish. We want to prevent the spread of fish diseases and stop any undesirable species and strains of fish from entering the county's water.
The County Administrative Board coordinates and conducts exploratory fisheries to monitor the development of the fishery resources. In addition, we use the opportunities provided by legislation to protect the natural fish habitat.
