you're actually right Polish name is nicer - you can use wikipedia how lipień is called in other languages than English too

I wasn't malicious in the slightest - only informed you how you can translate the fish species names

When I was in Poland last (not exactly recently!), "śledź" tasted even better than in Scandinavia. As I don't keep kosher, I could eat anything, and often didLOL

I teach a young girl English here in the Podkarpacie.....one day her pet goldfish died.....I said no problem we,ll clean the tank and get some minnows and other small wild fish to put in it. (I used to keep wild species in UK, they don,t need heaters etc) But she said, we won,t be able to as it is against the law!!! Don,t be silly we are talking netting minnows!!! but we checked as I could not believe it and it is apparently the law, children here are banned by law from the childhood joys of netting minnows on the riverbank.....I despair sometimes...kids around here have been arrested and taken home for their parents to pay a fine for them catching minnows???? Poland is striving for civilisation...this is one black mark against them ever achieving it for sure.

No. Most minnow species are strictly protected in Poland.

I kept minnows in a tank once upon the time while still studying - hardy m...f...ers they were as I spent most of the week out of home

I have to ask why such fish as minnows are protected......OK OK I know all of the watercourses are poisoned (round here all of the overflows from shambos run into the streams which run in to the rivers and I certainly wouldn,t entertain eating a fish caught here) but even so, not enough to kill off all the sticklebacks and minnows. If you think about it, young boys in UK have been catching small fish with nets since before records began and we have huge amounts of them. Is it just this strange Polish thing about regulating everything so that the 'river warden can have his little bit of power like in the communist times?

As a Swede living in Poland, I'm surprised that Poland has that type of stric laws regarding fishing. In Sweden, we don't need license to fish - at all. And when we were kids, we could even fish for free in almost every places.

Our goverment encourage us to do outdoor activities and here... you need license to fish in almost every public waters (except private ones).

And there are so much regulations for what to do, what to keep, blah blah blah.

I understand if they want to keep nice eco system in fresh water but at least, let us fish without license in the sea cause - especially when you are using only ONE rod to fish and not doing some crazy net fishing... Why are people trying to control their country that much? There are plenty of fish in the sea (more than you can even eat) and many sport fishermen are doing catch and release - especially us foreigners who have that tradition since we were kids. Maybe THAT'S the reason why polish fishermen rarely do catch and release just because it's so strict so therefore once they get the fish, they will refuse to release it.

You are a foreigner and are asking legitimate and very important questions. Well, almost any Pole will tell you that actually there is no good reason for this state of affairs... other than lack of common sense. That's one of the major problems with Poland today. Lack of common sense and no faith in human decency - hence everything needs to be regulated by law to the nth degree. The bureaucrats will no doubt argue that's needed to protect the rights of the citizens, bla bla bla... does anyone actually believe it? I doubt it.

the simple thing is that Polish anglers (fishermen?) rarely release their catch as there is a tradition among them to consume what they catch (rarely on the spot of course) - after all Polish people are known of eating carp at Christmas time - do you think they will scorn a humble roach, a tasty eel or a noble pike - then there is angler's union who grow little fish and release them in various waters - most of the income they (the union) have (most probably all of it) is from licences - et voila
