Meri-info information point
The information point for fishing is on the Kuninkaankartanonsaari Islands at Vanhankaupunginkoski, at address Viikintie 1. In addition to matters related to fishing licences, the fishing inspectors give information on the arrangements of fishing, as well as the amount of catches and other topics. The info point also has fishing and outdoor activity brochures, for example, a map of fishing areas in Helsinki and hiking and cycling maps. During the summer season, angling groups are organised from the beginning of May to the beginning of September.
The Fishing Info also sells the city’s fishing licences for both lure fishing and passive fishing (with a fishnet or fish trap, for example). Licences can paid only with the debit cards.
