Territoire

The FLAG is located in the North-Eastern part of Silesia and most municipalities are part of the Polish Jurassic Highland. There are 35 fish farms, of which 12 are quite large (and have over 20 ha of fish ponds). Their main production is different kinds of trout and carp. The area is highly rural and the rivers, lakes and fish ponds play an important role not only economically, but also from the point of view of the environment (water retention) and bio-diversity.

The challenges include lack of alternative sources of income and insufficiently developed tourism infrastructure.

Stratégie du GALPA

The FLAG intends to support beneficiaries from the fisheries sector in adding value to fisheries products by creating or developing innovative businesses. Tourism and other alternative activities will be promoted. The FLAG will encourage beneficiaries from the public and NGO sector to develop initiatives that would valorise the fisheries heritage and build on the natural and cultural assets of the area.
