European Percid Fish Culture (EPFC)


EAS thematic group on the culture of pikeperch, perch and other species of the family percidae for human consumption, stocking and conservation.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Dear EAS Members,
Dear PERCID-fish aquaculture insiders and stakeholders,

this is the website of the European Percid Fish Culture (EPFC) thematic group within EAS. Bringing together all those with an interest in the culture of pike-perch, perch and other species of the family percidae for human consumption, stocking and conservation. The goal of EPFC is to involve representatives from the sector in a network and to facilitate future cooperation and knowledge transfer, profiting from the high level of proficiency of all EPFC participants. The group is open to all members of the EAS and explicitly invites farmers and producers as well as scientists and policy makers.
