A licence is required for fishing in Danish seas, fjords and rivers for all persons between the ages of 18 and 65.
You can buy a licence valid for a year, a week or a day. The income from the sale of fishing licences benefits all anglers as the money is spent on maintaining the fish populations. Some places are subject to private fishing rights. This means that you may also need a local licence before you're allowed to cast your line. Staff at the tourist offices will assist you in working out which licences you'll need to fish in the various areas. You can also buy your licence(s) at these offices. If you want to fish in Skjern Å, you'll need a particular fishing licence and a separate salmon licence. At Put & Take lakes you only pay the owner.
