Fisheries supervision is an important part of fisheries management in Örsjön-Lillasjön. The purpose of our fisheries inspection is to ensure that laws and regulations are followed. In our area, it is required that a valid fishing license is purchased before fishing begins and the fishing license must be taken on the fishing trip together with a valid ID.

The lake is regularly patrolled by fisheries inspectors. The fact that fishing licenses have been redeemed and current rules are followed is monitored by a number of supervisors who are approved and appointed by the County Administrative Board.

Our fisheries inspectors have the legal right to seize the equipment used and poaching can lead to a police report. A fisheries inspector may inspect caught fish, fishing gear and fish swamp under control.
