Service Description

If you wish to transfer your fishing rights in full to another person, you can lease them to them. To do this, you conclude a fishing lease agreement with the tenant. You submit this lease agreement to the supreme fisheries authority for approval. The contract becomes effective upon approval. If you make a change to a fishing lease agreement, you must also submit this to the supreme fisheries authority for approval. If you terminate the contract, it is sufficient to notify the authority. If you do not submit the lease for approval, the contract may not be effective. This means that the contract only becomes fully effective when you submit it to the supreme fishing authority and it approves the contract.


Process flow

After you have concluded or amended a fishing lease,

  • send it together with the required documents by post to the higher fisheries authority and ask for approval of the contract.
  • If any documents are missing from the application, the authority will let you know and you can send them later.
  • The authority will now check whether the requirements for approval have been met and will inform you of this in an approval notice.

If approved, the contract is now fully effective.

Approval for your fishing lease will be granted if:

  • you have drawn up the contract in writing,
