Description
The illegal and excessive fishing in the wrong season is bringing the dissappearance of the rare species of Ohrid brown trout that is found at Ohri Lake and Pogradec.

Ohrid trout species towards the extinction.

Lake Ohrid is Europe┬┤s oldest lake and is believed to have been formed as early as during the Tertiary period at least 4 million years ago. In this lake will be found a variety of plants and fish species. The species can be counted until 17 different kind of species. Presently, there are two well described salmonid species in the lake, the Lake Ohrid brown trout Salmo letnica(Karaman) and the Belvica Salmo orhidanus.

The project will study various disciplines. The improvement of the environmental conditions and the promotion for the preservation and developmentn of fishery.


The project is divided in: a) active contribution b) external contribution 3) random contribution
Active contribution will be: 1.1 researchers, PhD student and professors.
Their contribution will be linked directly to the request for the determination of basic laws for fishery and the method of fishing including the laboratory analysis.
The group will be responsible for all the crucial points required in the research project.
External contribution will be offered by experts of various disciplines such as: Economic sciences, Enviromental sciences, Veterinary, Chemist etc. Their contribution will be linked to the data, outputs and results of the project.
The goal:
Firstly we want to improve the conditions and the evolvement for the preservation of fishery methods and fish cultivation.
