Hunting licence and regional quotas

The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry issues decrees on the annual quarry numbers to be allowed during a hunting year. Hunting licences may be granted as derogations from protection or on the basis of a regional quota. The Finnish Wildlife Agency is responsible for monitoring derogations based on a regional quota.

Provisions on the conditions for granting a hunting licence and the regulations to be included in the licence are laid down in the Hunting Decree.
