Fishing: Fishing is not a significant economic factor in Austria. The fish found in the domestic fish hatcheries are primarily trout and carp. Carp are mainly cultivated in the Waldviertel region and in Styria, trout in Styria, in Carinthia and Upper Austria. Annual carp production, including carp-related fish (tench, whitefish, silver carp, etc.) is approximately 1,200 tons, trout production about 3,000 tons. For carp, domestic production meets approximately 60% of demand, for trout approximately 70 %.
