  • December 5, 2009 - Opening of the Krusnica Fish Hatchery

Nedžad Ajanović of the FAO contacted BTRG two weeks ago and invited us to the opening of the Krušnica fish hatchery (description of the project). The project is founded by the Kingdom of Norway, represented at the opening by ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina Jan Braathu.

Saša and Andrej represented our group, another geneticist - Belma Kalamujić came from the Institute for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (INGEB), Sarajevo. We have all done a lot of work in population genetics of salmonid fish in the area and we used the opportunity to discuss our paper in the making, see the state-of-the-art hatchery and meet representatives of the local fishermen association. We hope that our visit will result in new research projects.
