3. HILUCS Topic: Fishing

Last updated by Lena Hallin-Pihlatie

Question: How to deal with water bodies that are allowed to be used for hobby fishing, or belong to a fishing association, but are not primarily used for aquaculture or commercial purpose?

Proposal: Insert an additional subtype 1_4_3_AmateurFishing.


This class includes professional fishing and aquaculture.


This class includes areas used for fish hatcheries and managed grow-out sites.


This class includes water areas used for professional fishing.

1_4_3_AmateurFishing [EAGLE proposal]

This class includes water areas used for amateur or hobby fishing (Hobby-Angler).
(EAGLE proposal, not yet in HILUCS)
