FIBER – Advisory service and training for fishermen

The Swiss Fisheries Advisory Service is a link between fisheries-related research, administration, and angling. FIBER provides scientific findings and information on  developments in the administration in the areas of aquatic environments, fish ecology and fisheries management.

FIBER currently has the following focal points:

  • preservation and promotion of natural reproduction and the related importance of the protection and enhancement of small water bodies
  • enhancement and connection of habitats
  • diversity of fish, with focus on intraspecific diversity

FIBER aims to promote a sustainable fishery by providing advisory services and training to fishermen. To this end, FIBER regularly organises seminars and workshops, publishes brochures or newsletters on current issues and offers public talks for fishing clubs and associations.
