Budapest, February 20 (MTI) – Hungary and Austria will tighten cooperation in fishing, angling and aquaculture and will join forces in interest representation in European Union organisations, the farm ministry said on Friday.

State secretary in charge of state-owned land Marton Bitay agreed on this with heads of Austria’s federal states at Die Hohe Jagd und Fischerei, a major European hunting and fishing expo in Salzburg on Thursday.

Bitay proposed exchanging professional experiences in angling tourism, and they discussed cooperation in research and development and new breeds to be introduced in fisheries in Austria.

Bitay gathered information about ways to expand hunting opportunities for Austrians in Hungary, the operation of Austria’s hunting trophies grading system and game damage insurance.
