About this book

Language: German

The grayling certainly does not rank among the most spectacular and famous river fish of Central Europe. Only a few natural observers have ever consciously observed them in their typical habitats, although they are among the dominant species. Just a few decades ago, it appeared in astonishing numbers. In the meantime, it has suffered a dramatic decline in its entire distribution range. This alone should be reason enough to deal more closely with this species. The authors have been dealing with the grayling for many years as fishermen, fish breeders and anglers. The results of their investigations are included in this monograph as well as the experience of other experts, and this book shows how even an unassuming fish species can be an interesting study subject when you know them well enough. The reader will get to know the grayling both from a zoological point of view, and from their dependence on the environment. He will get to know a fish that is still a problem for fishermen and anglers, but also a fish that is currently in need of protection.

Summary in German:
Die Äsche zählt sicherlich nicht gerade zu den spektakulärsten und bekanntesten Flußfischarten Mitteleuropas. Nur wenige Naturbeobachter haben sie jemals bewußt in ihren typischen Lebensräumen gesehen, obwohl sie dort zu den dominanten Arten gehört. Noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten kam sie in erstaunlicher Zahl vor. Zwischenzeitlich mußte sie in ihrem gesamten Verbreitungsareal einen dramatischen Rückgang hinnehmen. Dies allein sollte Grund genug sein, sich näher mit dieser Art zu befassen. Die Autoren beschäftigen sich seit vielen Jahren als Fischereibiologen, Fischzüchter und Angler mit der Äsche. Die Ergebnisse eigener Untersuchungen fließen in diese Monographie ebenso ein wie die Erfahrungen anderer Äschenexperten, und es ist zu spüren, daß man auch von unscheinbaren Fischgestalten begeistert sein kann, wenn man sie nur genau genug kennt. Der Leser wird sie kennenlernen, sowohl aus zoologischer Sicht als auch in ihrer Abhängigkeit von der Umwelt. Er wird einen Fisch kennenlernen, der auch heute noch den Fischzüchter vor Probleme stellt und der Angler in seinen Bann zieht, aber auch einen Fisch, der gegenwärtig dringend des Schutzes bedarf.
