Catfish fishing contest

In Zemun, only a few fishermen still catch catfish using this tool. This way of hunting is practiced in only a few countries in the world and in many ways is unique. For this reason, such events have drawn the attention of competitors, visitors and the media as an ideal opportunity to promote the protection and conservation of the environment, tourism development and nurturing of traditional values. The intention of the European Centre "Danube" is to make the event traditional, that in time to come attract more visitors and to significantly contribute to the development of local communities by raising awareness about the importance of living in a preserved and healthy environment by using sustainable development principles.
