Brochure on Fisheries-PRESPA

Due to the geographic isolation of the Prespa Lakes from all other water bodies, except for the inflowing rivers, the number of endemic fish species is very high. The maintenance of the endemic species in the Prespa Lakes basin is of central ecological importance because their local extinction would mean global extinction. Despite that, not all of the endemic fishes in the basin are given legal protection.
