Fishing permits or other licences are not required either for deep sea fishing or fishing from the shore provided that you follow a set of simple rules:
In order to preserve Norwegian fish stocks we encourage everyone to avoid catching fish that are under the minimum size specified.
If you do catch a fish that is smaller than the minimum size, free it carefully from the hook and release it into the sea. If the fish is dead or is clearly not capable of surviving, you can keep it to eat.
The length of the fish is measured from the tip of the snout to the end of the outermost points of the tail fin.
A complete table of minimum fish sizes and up-to-date regulations for fishing in the Norwegian sea are available on the Directorate of Fisheries website.
