Do like Finland and raise the fine for illegal hunting

Wildlife and biodiversity is important when fighting the climate crisis.
To combat illegal hunting Finland has raised the fine according to the cost of protecting the endangered animals, resulting in less illegal hunting and awareness about that this hunting is no longer cool.
For instance, Swedish former Secretary of State who was caught with 15 eels was fined 38800 SEK whereas in Finland the fine would have been around 590000 SEK. I think that fine would have stopped him from illegal fishing and he could instead have stayed Secretary of State.
Government of Sweden, please consider do like Finland and raise the fines for illegal hunting! Actually, Norway should too, and Denmark, even the whole EU and why not UN. Sweden is also in position to raise this question in the EU parliament.

                Strict deterrent measures should be adopted like such huge fines.
