The article deals with legal nature conservation and landscape protection provisions in Specially Protected Areas (SPAs) related to hunting and fishing rights.
In from a point of view of the state of nature most valuable small-size areas, i.e. in National Nature Reserves (NNRs), hunting and fishing activities can be carried out only after approval made by a State Nature Conservancy authority. In National Parks (NPs), hunting and fishing can be limited or fully prohibited across the whole NPs territory or its parts. Nevertheless, due to high numbers in hoofed game incl. deer and wild boar and to lack of large predators, State Nature Conservancy authorities usually accept hunting the above game in either NNRs, or NPs. In SPAs, Act No. 114/1992 Gazette on Nature Conservation and Landscape Protection, as amended later, prohibits deliberate introduction of non-native fish and game species as well as intensive game-keeping, e.g. in game enclosures/preserves, farm keepings or pheasantries.
