Fishing, naturally, is one of the most popular activities in Hailuoto, an island surrounded by the sea. Angling and ice-fishing are everyman’s rights but for any other fishing method one would need a fishing licence. Licence type depends on the way of fishing, gear, fisherman’s age and the area where one is fishing. Please, see the licences here.
In Hailuoto, you have the option of fishing on your own or joining a fishing trip on a fishing boat.
