Who is behind HSSC?

Hvide Sande Sportsfisker Center (HSSC) is established through a co-operation between Hvide Sande Harbour, local tourist operators, Ringkøbing Skjern Municipality and ”Oplevelsesudvikling ved Ringkøbing Fjord”. HSSC is a self-governing institution. Our aim is therefore not to yield a profit. Revenues gained through the sale of fishing cards are therefore used to pay for the establishment, maintenance and further development of HSSC.
