Pay fishing tax

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If you want to fish or go fishing in Schleswig-Holstein, you must pay a fishing tax every year. You can pay the fishing tax on site (at the competent authority) or via the online service of the supreme fishing authority.

You must affix the fishing tax stamps to the fishing license issued by the state of Schleswig-Holstein or to a completed proof sheet before you start fishing. Proof of the fishing tax from the online procedure must be printed out or submitted as an electronic certificate.

In the following cases, you do not have to pay a fishing tax as no fishing license is required: in pond farms, in special fishing production facilities, in small private waters. This also applies to persons who fish in coastal waters on the basis of inter- or supranationally agreed access rights and to persons who fish together with the persons entitled to fish or persons entitled to exercise fishing rights or their assistants who hold a fishing license.
