RFVOF was formed in 1998.
After many and lengthy discussions between the municipalities in the area, Falun, Hedemora and Säter, a fisheries rights investigation started in the mid-90s. The Land Survey found over 700 fishermen's owners in the intended area.
From the county administrative board it was natural to ask it for many years now, working, Ryggens fishery conservation association, for participation in planning and investigative work. The working name during the investigation was also RFVOF.
Why was the area formed?
The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency had an assignment from the government to work to ensure that all waters where fishing can be exercised should be accessible to the public. The assignment included dividing the country via the county administrative boards into smaller units - Fishery Conservation Areas - where fishery owners through area boards can freely decide how to fish.
As a basis for statutes for the area associations, some of the county administrative boards formulate paragraphs. These paragraphs are generally valid for the entire country. In addition, the associations are given a great deal of room to decide for themselves other statutes. There is a requirement that the area association must provide and sell fishing licenses to fishermen, local residents and the general public. The association must have persons who can supervise compliance with the association's decision on fishing activities.
Revenue from fishing license sales goes back in time to improvements for fishing operations.Customer number: 1041, Area: 1004.
