Economic Responsibility
Fur production is economically significant for Finland. The industry sales revenue comes almost entirely from abroad. In 2021, the value of commission sales was 392 million euros. In the 2010s, fur farming has contributed an average of 400-500 million euros per annum in export revenues to Finland.


Taxes and contributions from the fur industry to the state and municipalities amounted to 87M€ in 2021. 

In 2021, the fur industry produced 196–303€ per capita for the five largest producer municipalities. Uusikaarlepyy received 303€ per capita in tax revenues. In other major producer communities, taxes generated by the fur industry accounted for 6.5 % in Evijärvi, 7.2 % in Halsua, 5.7 % in Kaustinen, and 8.2 % in Lappajärvi and Uusikaarlepyy of all tax revenue in the municipality.

Thanks to tax revenue, many rural municipalities are thriving and capable of producing basic services for the local residents, such as childcare, care for the elderly and schools.
