A very warm welcome to our Potsdam Institute of Inland Fisheries (IfB, Institut für Binnenfischerei e.V.) in Potsdam Sacrow, in the state of Brandenburg, Germany.
We are a scientific institution for applied inland fisheries and fish ecology research, and consider our work to provide a link between blue sky research and industry practice, based on the principle "Practical fisheries research for practitioners".
We are very excited to present you with the brand new English language version of our Institute's website, an information platform about the activities and projects of our research institute and its staff.
If you are missing anything here that you really want to find out about, please feel free to contact our friendly staff by email or phone (if in the EU) - on each webpage you will find information on the most suitable contact to use for the respective topic.
We do hope you will enjoy browsing our website and are looking forward to engaging with you in the future.
Our main activities
We invest in the future
Research and Development
The use of natural resources for food production and as an economic basis for income is now more than ever considered in connection with its impact on the entire aquatic world.
Education and Training
Offers for professional exchange and further training are becoming increasingly important because commercial fishing, angling and the tasks of fisheries administrations are constantly changing and have to adapt to new circumstances.
IfB - Publications
We publish the results of our research work in the IfB annual reports, in which we present our work and projects, in themed issues on specific areas of fisheries and in articles in specialist journals.
