The field of study Fisheries and Protection of Waters is a comprehensive and universal field which, in addition to knowledge from the biological, ecological and technological aspects of fisheries and water management, focuses on the issue of protection of the aquatic environment. It also provides an overview of related or related fields. The issue of both directions is deepened here. In the case of fisheries, this applies in particular to special fish farming, fish reproduction and breeding, in the case of water protection to the protection of water resources, measures to support wildlife biodiversity, open water management, wastewater treatment and the aspect of aquatic contamination. The issue of fisheries and water protection is understood in this study program inseparably and comprehensively and is based on legislative requirements and modern trends and needs.
