Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is a landlocked country with no sea fisheries but important aquaculture (pond-based) production of carp. Carp breeding is rooted in the history, culture and society of the Czech Republic and has proved highly profitable since the 15th century. The Czech Republic has over 24 000 ponds and tanks, mostly in southern Bohemia and covering a total of around 50 000 hectares.

Pond aquaculture is subject to restrictions governing surface-water use. Output is contingent on rational harvesting levels, which in turn are based on external initiatives for maximum environmental protection. Most problems are caused by silting in the ponds as well as from other functions not directly related to production such as flood prevention, environmental protection and recreation.
