Fishing -applying for a permit for electrofishing (fishing with electricity)

Service Description

Today, scientists, fishermen and anglers use modern methods such as electrofishing to study fish stocks. Electrofishing is a prohibited fishing method due to its anaesthetic effect. It may therefore only be used under certain conditions and in justified exceptional cases after approval by the supreme fisheries authority.

In Thuringia, this authority is the Thuringian Ministry of Infrastructure and Agriculture.
