Are you e.g. fishing for sea trout, note that colored sea trout are protected by law from November 16 – January 15 (both days included).

Rules also apply for rivers that run into the sea – here certain areas are completely or periodically protected in order to conserve migratory sea trout populations. Find more about these rules here.
