Balaton weather


Our company called Balaton Fish Management Non-Profit Ltd was founded on 25 August 2009 but its predecessor company had been working on Lake Balaton since 1899.

Balaton Fish Management Non-Profit Ltd is the property of the Hungarian State in 100 %.

The main task of our company is the ecological fish management on Lake Balaton. Our first aim is to provide the optimal catch rate for the anglers, in the case of fish species popular among them. On the other hand the variety of fish species must also be kept. Furthermore, the protection of natural values and the conditions of quality tourism are equally important.

Our most important activities are the following ones:

  • Selective fishing on Lake Balaton and Kis-Balaton
  • Populating fish into the lake according to the fish management plans approved by the authorities
  • Breeding fish in our fisheries in order to ensure the maximal rate of self-bred fish during the population
  • Guarding fish on Lake Balaton in order to protect the population
  • Management of natural fish-death in spring
  • Issuing fishing licenses, angling management and running our own fisheries
  • Ecological management of Lake Balaton, augmentation of native fish species
