Der gælder forskellige fredningstider for forskellige arter, men en tommelfingerregel er, at fiskene er fredet mellem 16/11-15/1 på tværs af arter. Se fredninger for de specifikke arter i forskellige farvande på Fiskeristyrelsen

Basically, you can fish almost everywhere except 500m from streams, streams and narrows of fjord and sea.

In the case of streams and artificial fishing passages as well as certain tidal locks, it is prohibited to fish at a distance of 50m from the entrance / exit. Fishing passes are also prohibited from fishing in the passage itself.

Local regulations can apply, and if you are in doubt about a conservation belt, you can take a closer look at the Danish Fisheries Authority.
