Can i bring the fish home? (Denmark)

How to Use the Calculator

Select the fish you have caught in the dropdown menu at the top. Next, select whether it was caught in saltwater or freshwater, and in which area you caught the fish. Now, enter the length of the fish. The date selector picks the current date as default. If you want to check if a fish will be in season in the future, you can set the date to the date when you’re thinking about going fishing. Then hit the button “Click here for your answer” – you will now be told whether you can bring home the fish.

Respect Rules and Regulations

The calculator is based on general fishing regulations regarding in-season times and minimum landing sizes, as well as a number of local regulations that apply to fishing in defined, limited areas. Note that many freshwater fishing holes are subject to local regulations that are more stringent than state regulations. You are responsible to know all the rules.

Why was the Calculator Developed?

We developed this calculator, because we believe that as hobby fishers (and gear retailers), we should make an effort to promote the observation of seasons and minimum landing sizes to support hobby fishing as much as possible. Seasons and minimum landing sizes are determined based on a calculation by the authorities and must be respected, so we also can have the best possible fishing in the future.
