Fishing 15 March - 15 June

Norwegian residency is required to fish inland fish at the Finnmark Estate between 15 March and 15 June.

Dispensation for individuals

Do you live outside Norway?

You may be granted dispensation from the residency requirement by visiting a tourism operator (as written further below), or if:

  • you have close family in Finnmark, i.e. parents, parents-in-law, siblings or children
  • you are working in Finnmark, at least 1 month during the current fishing period
  • you own a property in Finnmark
  • fishing and transportation related to fishing is performed without use of motorized vehicles

You do not apply to FeFo for a dispensation, if you fulfill one or more of these points. To be able to buy a fishing licence, you must check a box to confirm that you fulfill these requirements. The licence will be proof of your dispensation.

If you have other reasons that exempt you from the residency requirement, you may send a written application to FeFo.

Dispensation for tourism operators

Tourism operators may apply for dispensation for up to three years at a time. The application form can be found here. An overview of operators with dispensation is posted below. If you visit a tourism operator with dispensation, you may take advantage of their dispensation while you are a guest.
