Fishing in Loviisa

At the coastal Loviisa you will find plenty of opportunities for active leisure like fishing. You can spend your holiday for example in high-class cottages and enjoy the archipelago by boat, fishing and picnicking. What should you consider before going fishing - a fishing licence? Why not make it easy and head to the seas with a local fishing guide?

General fishing rights are rights comparable to everyman's fishing rights, but unlike everyman's rights, the general fishing rights may or may not be subject to a fee. Hook and line fishing, ice fishing and fishing with a simple herring rig are free general fishing rights that do not require a permit or the payment of a fee.
The right to recreational fishing within the Finnish economic region and in the Finnish public water areas in the Baltic Sea is a general fishing right that requires the payment of the national fisheries management fee if the angler is 18–64 years old.
