When taking fish out of Norway, fishing tourists must prove that the catch was made under the direction of Tjongsfjord Lodge.
This documentation requirement applies to anyone who uses the new export quota of 20 kg. Individuals can always carry 10 kg of fish. If the catch is under the direction of Tjongsfjord Lodge, 20 kg can be carried. This restriction is valid for a period of 7 days.
