EM2 20 News Int PolandThe National Marine Fisheries Research Institute in Gdynia along with the Ministry of Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation, the Inland Fisheries Institute in Olsztyn, and the Sturgeon Producers Organization in Toruń, held a scientific conference entitled “Innovative and traditional production of fish in Poland” as part of the International Green Week Berlin,  an international food, agriculture, and gardening exhibition, popular with consumers and trade visitors but also among representatives of the fisheries and scientific sectors from various EU countries. The large turnout and lively discussions justify the promotion of Polish fish products on the foreign food markets. Creating a positive image of Polish fish products on the German market is particularly important because it is the most important importer of Polish fish products. Two important directions of fish production in Poland were discussed: traditional fishing with its centuries of history, and fish farming in natural conditions, in which the wellbeing of the fish is preserved was one topic, while innovative methods focusing on the use of specialized, modern, and technologically advanced equipment and integrated recirculation systems in fish farming, was the other.
