Fishing licence exhibition

If you want to fish in Lower Saxony, you often need a fishing licence. It is not compulsory under fisheries law; however, most fishing rightholders make it a condition for issuing the fishing permit.

If you wish to fish in an inland waterway where you are not a fishing beneficiary or a fishing tenant, in addition to the fishing licence or identity card, you will in any case need a certificate issued by the beneficiary that you are allowed to fish (fishing permit). The same applies to the Lower Saxon coastal waters of the Weser.

The fishing permit (fishing card) must be obtained from the owner of the vessel. Questions can often be answered by local fishing associations.
Information on the Lower Saxon Fisherman's Examination can be found on the websites of the fishing associations mentioned below or at your local fishing association.
