Byskeälvens fishing area The Västerbotten section was formed in December 1989. There is a fishery area, Byskeälven's upper fish farms, for those parts belonging to Norrbotten County.
The fishery area consists of more than 400 fish owners.
The task of the fishery area is to manage the fishery in Byskeälven in the towns of Byske and Jörn, Skellefteå municipality, Västerbotten County. The fishery area covers not only water associated with fish owners in respect of the Elk / Elk Valley but also in the sea. Regarding the ocean, according to the statutes: "In the sea within the Byske shift and within the Furuskogen 2: 1 the fishing area is bounded by the border with public water".
The association shall fish in the fishery area through the sale of fishing licenses to the public. Decisions to grant a license may not contravene Section 8 of the Act on Fisheries Areas. The more detailed terms are decided annually at the Annual General Meeting.
When the Byske River fishing area, the Västerbotten part, was formed in late December 1989, this was a historic moment for fishing in this river. The fishing area was becoming the biggest in the country. The area stretches from a good distance outside the Byske River estuary in Byskefjärden in Bottenviken and up to the border with Norrbotten County - a river stretch of ten mil double strand.
Through the establishment of this large fishing area, the public is given the opportunity to fish all this way towards solving a single fishing license.Customer number: 945, Area: 898.
