*Genuine Lusatian fish

In addition to carp, pike and sturgeon are among the traditional fish that have been farmed in Lusatia for almost 800 years. However, other species can also be sold as "Lusatian fish" if they meet certain quality criteria. To do this, the pond farms must be inspected and certified by a panel of experts. Some companies stand out in particular, e.g. through their work as a training company or if they source their feed or fry from the region.

You can find out exactly what is behind the "Lausitzer Fisch" brand further down on this page.

Here you will find all the businesses certified under the brand.


Lusatian fish must have spent at least a third of its life in Lusatia.
This means both Upper Lusatia (Saxony) and Lower Lusatia (Brandenburg) .
In addition, the fish must be "harvested" within this region.


In order to be allowed to use the "Lusatian fish" brand in the catering trade, quality criteria must also be met.
