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

Service Description

Today, scientists, fishermen and anglers use modern methods such as electrofishing to study fish stocks. Electrofishing is one of the prohibited fishing methods because of its anesthetic 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.
