Since March 2014, the state fishery examination has been handled exclusively via the online procedure - the previous written examination, which took place on the first Saturday of each March, has been replaced by this procedure. The prerequisite for taking part in a recognized preparatory course is to be 12 years of age on the day of the fishery examination.
