In this area, all fishing is prohibited, which requires some form of boat, such as trolling and net fishing. Fishing is not allowed from October 1st until March 31st. The ban does not apply to fishing with lobster tins. From 1 April to 30 September, fishing may only take place within the protected areas and with land bait for herring, sprat or mackerel, with lobster tins and with hand gear if the fishing method as such does not require the use of a boat or consists of angling or similar methods. It is permitted to keep a total of two fish in total of the catch of salmon and trout per day when fishing with hand gear. Fishing licenses must be worn visibly to be valid.
