Activities at the Department


Hydrobiology-limnology, (physical and chemical properties of the water, biotopes and communities of aquatic organisms, nutrient supply of shallow lakes, aquatic species, ecological needs of the most important aquatic taxa) Fish farming (characteristics, fish species and farming technologies of constructed ponds as well as the biology of farmed fish species). 


Induced spawning of fish, fry rearing, pond farming technology. Induced spawning includes the development of the hatchery spawning technology of several farmed species. Fry rearing includes the regulation of zooplankton in ponds, optimization of starter food organisms of fish fry (rotifers, copepod nauplii), selection and management of rotifers (Brachionus sp. Keratella sp.), productivity of cladocerans during the summer. Pond farming technology includes the development of pond farming (polyculture) technology, chemical and biological inhibition of the bloom of cyanobacteria, adaptation of pond farming technology to the changing economic situation.
