So Rönneån will become the hottest fishing water in the country

2019-12-14T08:07:08.468Z

More people will be attracted to tourist sustainably around Rönneån and Ringsjöarna. Six Scanian municipalities have now received EU support for the project - and the hope is to make the area one of Scandinavia's hottest fishing waters.



The idea is that in ten years Rönneån and the Ringsjöarna will be an "obvious destination for salmon fishing in Scandinavia". This is stated in a press release sent by the municipality of Ängelholm earlier this week.

"One of the foremost fishing regions"

The project has now received SEK 1.7 million through the EU support program Leader. The money will fund a feasibility study.

- I absolutely believe that fishing tourism has great development potential in the area. There are many fishing enthusiasts, but also those who want to stay at home. I believe that with this project we can lay the groundwork for becoming one of the foremost fishing regions, says Robin Holmberg (M), chairman of the municipal council in Ängelholm.

- The hospitality industry is one of the strongest growing industries. If you have this resource as Rönneån, then it is clear that we should be involved in developing it, he says.

Eight miles long

Work on the feasibility study is expected to continue until 2022 and will map out suitable locations for fishing and outdoor life along the 80 km long river. Thereafter, the hands-on work will take off: bridges and parking lots will be built - and the site marketed.

Salmon should be seated

SVT has previously stated that Klippan received 20 million EU dollars for, among other things, demolishing three obsolete hydropower plants in Rönneån.

- This will enable the fish to travel all the way from Skälderviken to the Ringsjöarna, which means that we can develop fishing tourism. Especially when it comes to salmon fishing, but we also see opportunities for other forms of tourism, says Lena Åström, chief strategist at Ängelholm.

The six Skåne municipalities that work together to develop Rönneån are Ängelholm, Eslöv, Hörby, Höör, Klippan and Åstorp. Ultimately, the Swedish Board of Agriculture decides whether EU funds should be paid out.
