5 tips for sustainable fishing
 
1. Obtain knowledge. Knowledge in ecology and fish conservation is one of the most crucial factors for successful and long-term sustaiable fishing. Also, of course, the know-how to translate knowledge into practical action.

2. Follow laws and regulations. Get acquainted with general fishing rules for fishing in Sweden and with the specific rules that apply to the area in which you fish and the species you fish for. Make sure you have a valid fishing license for the current area.

3. Prioritize eco-friendly companies. Choosing companies that have a well-defined and clear fisheries management policy and environmental considerations, such as Nature's Best approved companies, does good for the environment, nature, and fish while stimulating the whole market to become more aware.


4. Serve as a responsible example. It is not always easy to make a stand for the environment and the fish in our waters. To make a change, support and help are often needed. Therefore it's essential for the conscious fisherman to set an excellent example for environmental and fisheries conservation to inspire and influence attitudes and other fishers.

5. Never take up more fish than you need. Whether you catch-and-release or not. All mass consumption has negative consequences for the environment and ecological sustainability. Any unnecessary fish taken from a fishing lake is a loss of a resource in that ecosystem. Never take up more fish than you need and do not catch fish at all if you are not entirely sure that the local fish stocks and fisheries are long-term ecologically sustainable.
