PL224
Programming period: 
2007-2013

Territoire

The FLAG area is situated in the northern part of Wielkopolska, relatively close to big cities such as Poznań, Gniezno, Bydgoszcz and Piła. It is rich in lakes, rivers, ponds and fishing grounds and there is good potential for rural tourism and recreational activities.

About 84% of the fish produced in the area is carp. The incomes and competitivity of fish farming is low due mainly to a long production cycle and the seasonality of demand.

The economic activity is not sufficiently diversified, and the area’s tourism potential and cultural heritage are not sufficiently valorised.

Type of area:
Sea Basins:
Protected areas: 

There are several landscape parks, including the oldest landscape park in the region (Lednica Landscape Park). There are also several natural reserves, areas of protected landscape and Natura 2000 areas.
