Summary/Recommendations/Objectives:

A
visit was made to Poland in April 1977 to survey the

current
status of commercial fish farming and research programs

related
to fish culture in that country. Purpose of the

survey
was to evaluate prospects for increasing yield of fish

through
more intensive feeding of protein and
energy rich

feeds.
The trip was arranged by the U. S. Feed
Grains Council,

the
Agricultural Office of the U. S. Embassy in Polanci,

and
the Institute of Zootechnics in Krakow, Poland.

Information for the survey was provided by the three supporting

agencies mentioned above, by the Polish Academy of

Sciences, and by other government and private concerns.

Trips were made to several government experimental

stations, research laboratories, and commercial fish
farms.

The itinerary for the visit is presented in Appendix I.

Fisheries
scientists· from the Institute of Zootechnics

cooperated
in designing a research project to be conducted at

the
fisheries research station at Zator. The project, which

concerns
various supplemental feeding practices to
increase

yield
of carp in ponds, is explained in Appendix 2.

This report presents data from the survey on the status of

food fish culture in Poland, emphasizing the
present state of

the art, the environmental and physical resources, and the

potential for increasing yield and production of fish in the

country.
