Institute of Ichthyobiology and Aquaculture



The scientific activity in the Unit covers the following area:

    Studies on biology and the technology of fish breeding
    Biotechniques in the fish pond aquaculture
    The interaction between the pond complexes and water management
    Immune response and disease resistance of common carp
    Protection of the freshwater fish biodiversity

The Institute of Ichthyobiology and Aquaculture of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Gołysz maintains a live gene bank which includes seventeen purebred common carp strains of various geographical origin. This enables the production of the common carp stocking materials with desired productive characteristics for the carp farmers. The live gene bank is supported by the Operational Programme 'Sustainable Development of Fisheries and Coastal Fishing Areas 2007 - 2013' in a frame of the subtask aimed at protection of genetic resource.

Through the years of Unit activity special focus has been given to:

Identification of the species composition of plant and animal inhabiting ponds
Understanding the course of metabolism in pond ecosystems, chemical, and biological processes dependently on the level of fish production
Expanding the knowledge of the physical environment of the ponds, definition of main determinants and their impact on pond ecosystems
Development of methods to prevent excessive eutrophication of pond ecosystems
Optimization the biotechnology of the intensive production of one- and two-year-old carp stocking material
Development the techniques of energy-efficient fish production under controlled conditions, like African catfish and Nile tilapia
Adaptation to local climatic conditions the integrated intensive-extensive systems of fish rearing
Genetic characterisation of 17 domestic and foreign common carp breeding strains
Establishing the methodology of genetic monitoring the changes in common carp strains
Characterization of common carp strains in terms of their resistance to pathogens
