Statskog aims to make fishing readily available. So we offer a single licence, the Statskog Norway Licence, valid for all fishing on public lands, except state-owned common lands (Crown Lands) in southern Norway.
Hunting is a strong tradition in Norway. It's a popular recreation, widely accepted by the public. Each year, some 140,000 men and women go hunting. Many hunt on Statskog lands. Statskog is the governmental guarantor for sustainable management and for public access to affordable hunting.
Statskog is a State-owned Enterprise (SOE) that manages public lands to perpetuate shared values. Statskog SOE is Norway’s largest landowner. Public lands amount to 59,000 km2, that is, a fifth of the mainland.
