In fishing, ethics and nature's sustainability are very important. For this, we have prepared a 10-point fisherman's code of ethics, which, by following them, future generations will have the opportunity to enjoy rich and clean nature.
Respect fish, man and nature.
1. Be a role model in fishing and pass on your knowledge of responsible fishing. Use fishing equipment designed and adapted for each type of fish.
2. Follow applicable fishing regulations and reporting. Respect nature reserves and the species that live there.
3. Support and practice Catch&Release method of fishing. Handle the fish with care and as little as possible outside the water. Catch only as much fish as you consume yourself.
4. Keep the natural environment and water around you clean. Always take all trash with you, even if someone else has left it.
5. Respect the other angler - don't get too close to the other angler and don't bother him without reason. If possible, choose another fishing area.
6. Respect private property and landowners. When traveling by car in nature, use only the designated road or path and drive only in places where it is allowed.
7. Safety is important! Fishing is fun, but it can also be dangerous, so act responsibly and protect yourself and others in all situations. To ensure safety, the consumption of alcohol while fishing is not recommended.
8. Do not be indifferent if you notice a violation of the law. If you notice a violation, call for order and/or notify the police and/or the environmental inspection.
9. Contribute to the improvement of fish stocks. Volunteer to restore spawning grounds, remove beaver dams, or protect fish during their spawning season.
10. Follow these principles and introduce them to other fishermen.
