During the Rybomania trade fairs held in Poznań, representatives of the CATCH project from the Green Federation “GAJA” and the Stepnica Tourist Organization met with Jakub Vágner, well known extreme angler specializing in fishing for giant fish around the world. Very pleasant chat was an opportunity to share information about the CATCH project. Jakub Vágner emphasized the importance of sustainable angling and expressed interest in the CATCH project activities. We are very happy with the contact we have made and we hope that we will be able to convert it into cooperation within the project.
