Company information: Lapland Wild Fish / Lapin Villikala in Pello in Lapland, Finland
Lapland Wild Fish (Lapin Villikala) is in the business of commercial fishing, fish processing and fish tourism. The company operates in the Tengeliönjoki river area, whose most important fishing destination is Lake Miekojärvi in Lapland, Finland. Fish processing is done at the EU-certified Miekojärvi Lake fishing harbor in Sirkkakoski Village in Pello in Finland.
Fisherman Mr. Jouko Sirkkala runs the company, whose professional fishing roots run back five generations.
The main objectives of Lapland Wild Fish are sustainable fishing and fishing tourism. The fishery favours selective fishing methods and aims to distribute fishing pressure evenly among the different species of fish. The fish are allowed to mature at least until adulthood, and we attempt to leave the largest specimens in the waterways to strengthen the genetic makeup of the fish.
Lapland Wild Fish attaches great importance to the purity of the waterways and the possibility of fish stocks naturally growing in both the lakes and streams. All of this culminates in the unique clean and delicious fish of the Arctic Circle, which provides customers with the freshest and properly processed fish.
Fishing tourism in the clear waters of Lake Miekojärvi in Finland and the spectacular scenery is an experience that brings people from around the world. The Nightless Nights in the summer and the Northern Lights in the frosty winter create a unique atmosphere for fishing trips. Spring brings migratory birds and autumn paints the scenery in wonderful colors. Fishing tourism at Lake Miekojärvi in Finnish Lapland happens all year round.
During the open water season, Lapland Wild Fish’s main boat is a fully-loaded Sirmet 525, with a catamaran hull and a load capacity of 1100 kg. This season also welcomes smaller commercial boats on the water. During the weak ice seasons, we operate a Kelirikko 420 hydrocopter. On the strong ice, we move across the lake on snowmobiles and quad bikes.
