This chapter shortly reviews the present state of Hungarian fisheries including commercial and recreational activities in natural waters, along with aquaculture production. Major threats to natural fish production are the degradation of habitats, the introduction of non-indigenous species, the overexploitation of native fish populations and the improper stocking strategy. Priorities, recent developments and future recommendations in fisheries managements are discussed.
