Fishery management practices in French lakes

Abstract : A survey on local fishery management methods applied in French lakes, ponds and reservoirs carried out in 1998 showed that fish stocking was the main management measure. These operations relied upon the experience of field staff rather than a standard decision process. An analysis of the relationship between stocking effort and fish communities proved the poor efficiency of these programmes apart from in mountain lakes. The absence of fisheries monitoring is considered the main factor limiting the efficiency of fisheries management practices. Since 1995, fisheries management plans were set up throughout France. Lakes and reservoirs included in this process must take into account anglers' demand, as well as environmental preservation.
