On Friday, January 16th 2015, the University of South Bohemia held an Open Day. The Faculty of Fisheries and Protection of Waters had arranged a rich program for the prospective students and welcomed more than forty visitors in our new-built premises in University campus! The visitors could see a presentation of the Faculty and its study programs, prepared and presented by the Vice-Dean for Study Affairs, Ing. Martin Kocour, Ph.D. After that, two of our talented students, Hana Šachlová and Róbert Pflug, presented students’ life at our faculty, studying abroad or interesting courses they’ve subscribed. From 9.00 a.m. to 3 p.m. all the visitors could enjoy the exhibitions and presentations in the individual classrooms and training laboratories. The exposition included a display of permanent specimens, examples of tracing and behaviour evaluating systems of fish and crayfish as water quality bioindicators. Further attention was given to water quality monitoring and microscopic observation. There were laser shooting prepared or anybody could let themselves scan part of their body or favourite object and let them printed on a 3D printer. During the whole day there were students to guide visitors through exhibitions and to answer all their questions. Great interest attracted the outstanding presentation of crayfish and fly fishing with the opportunity to make your own fly. Both of them had been prepared by the students of the Faculty of Fisheries and Protection of Waters, Roman Lunda and Kateřina Švagrová. In other classrooms and teaching laboratories the visitors could admire our aquariums with catfish, tilapias, and whitefish, electric aggregate fishing equipment, or test their smell and taste buds on a variety of more or less exotic fats used in the food industry and for cooking. The exposition was completed with visual presentations of the Institute of Fisheries laboratory activities. Our student Jakub Krejsa demonstrated some fish processing techniques. The savoury fish refreshment had been provided by the Faculty shop Fish for Health and its chef, Ing. Eduard Levý. It was possible to try such specialties as hot, spicy paprika-based river fish soup called halászlé! We thank all the fantastic visitors who came to enjoy the Open Day with us and to all the students and Faculty employees who participated in the organization!
