The article presents the results of the evaluation of the fishpond dams shape in the region of Kostelec and Kouřim in the Central Bohemian Region. The shape of the dams was assessed on the basis of a detailed digital terrain model derived from the data of Digital Relief Model of 5th Generation.
Growth and decline of fishery in Poděbrady and Nymburk Estates from the point of view of historical hydrology
This contribution presents a current occurrence of drought periods and declines of fishponds (including entire fishpond systems), in Poděbrady and Nymburk counties. Such relation is not straightforward, when we consider fishponds as reservoirs of water and energy.
The article focuses on the identification of fishponds dawn on the maps of the 1st Austrian Military Survey. The presented analyses are based mainly on manual work with old maps, because the maps used for the study lack the precision and detail needed for automated processing in the GIS environment.
Ponds have been mentioned very often in recent years in connection with the prevention of negative consequences of drought. They are cited as one of a wide range of measures.
Interview with the director of the Secondary Fishing School in Vodňany Ing. Karel Dubský on the topic of fish farming, anniversary of the secondary fishing school and much more.
Possibilities of using old topographic maps from the years 1763–1768 for evaluating the development of water bodies and the potential for their renewal
Potential of water areas restoration is a hot topic in present landscape planning. The focus is usually on water areas from mid-19th century where their location is quite good due to maps’ positional accuracy. Yet, we can also use older Austrian military survey from 1763–1768, which enables us to locate dams of water areas and assess potential for restoration of these areas.
Ponds shape the landscape in many places in the Czech Republic, and in some areas they are even the dominant landscape element. The most famous current fishpond area is undoubtedly Třeboňsko, but we can find other important systems.
As part of the Drought project, a comprehensive monitoring of watercourses and land in their catchment areas was launched in the Czech Republic to assess the impact of the implementation of revitalization actions to protect against the effects of drought.
Ponds are an important and organic part of the landscape in the Czech Republic through ages. They are spread over most of the area of the republic and have different functions besides the one which is historically the most important – fish farming.
Small water reservoirs are one of the principal elements of agricultural landscape in the Central European context. The monitoring of the quality of aquatic environment of selected ponds and small reservoirs (SWR) in areas of southern and central Moravia and the Vysočina Region was carried out in 2013 to 2015.
