WHERE: University of South Bohemia, Faculty of Fisheries and Protection of Waters

WHEN: 28th June 2021 - 23rd July 2021


The Summer School is a four-week course within which you are involved in a small research project, working in very well-equipped laboratories under the guidance of experienced researchers of the FFPW USB.

The work in laboratories is supplemented by excursions to fish farms and visits to other interesting places, such as the Český Krumlov town (, the Třeboň town (, Fishery in Třeboň Hld. Inc. ( Fishery in Nové Hrady ( and many other interesting places in the Czech Republic.

There will be opened 17 projects in 2021. You can find detailed information about the ISS 2021 in the BROCHURE. Here you can see the PROGRAM.
