Balaton Fish Management Non-Profit Ltd

Our company called Balaton Fish Management Non-Profit Ltd was founded on 25 August 2009 but its predecessor company had been working on Lake Balaton since 1899.

Balaton Fish Management Non-Profit Ltd is the property of the Hungarian State in 100 %.

The main task of our company is the ecological fish management on Lake Balaton. Our first aim is to provide the optimal catch rate for the anglers, in the case of fish species popular among them. On the other hand, the variety of fish species must also be kept. Furthermore, the protection of natural values and the conditions of quality tourism are equally important.

Our most important activities are the following ones:

  • Selective fishing on Lake Balaton and Kis-Balaton
  • Populating fish into the lake according to the fish management plans approved by the authorities
  • Breeding fish in our fisheries in order to ensure the maximal rate of self-bred fish during the population
  • Guarding fish on Lake Balaton in order to protect the population
  • Management of natural fish-death in spring
  • Issuing fishing licenses, angling management and running our own fisheries
  • Ecological management of Lake Balaton, augmentation of native fish species

The objectives of the Association are to promote recreational angling, improve sports fishing, ensure domestic and foreign fishing opportunities, respect fishing ethics, educate anglers, and protect the environment.

More than 10% of the population, nearly 1.2 million people, come in contact with fishing directly or indirectly through their families. For several years, the Association has been helping people with creating new opportunities of fishing.

We help you to:

  • get your state license
  • we do all the paperwork immediately (which is unique in Hungary)
  • we are available at pre-arranged places and time
  • we give you, as a member of our association, a 1.000 HUF Energofish voucher

The number of our members is increasing. In 2016 we had 5-6.000 anglers in our association.  We feel privileged to have Laszlo Cseh (Olympic champion) and Zsolt Erdei (boxing champion) among our honorary members.

In 2017, our main goal was to establish cooperative connections with our partners. These connections open the door for fishing in the surrounding countries. Moreover, we provide exam opportunities for all of our would-be members.
