Angling in Denmark
Angling is a popular spare-time activity in Denmark. Everyone aged between 18 and 65 angling in Denmark must hold a valid angling licence. Angling is fishing using light hand tackle.
The incomes from sales of fishing licences are spent on fish care through stocking, restoration and similar things in relation to streams and lakes in addition to measures and research of importance to reproduction, growth etc. of the fish stocks.
In this way, the fish benefit from the means, and this provides better opportunities for good fishing for anglers, recreational fishermen, sideline fishermen and professional fishermen.
