HUNTING AND FISHING DAYS are held under the auspices of the City of Zagreb and the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure of the Republic of Croatia and in cooperation with permanent partners - the Croatian Hunting Association and the Croatian Sports Fishing Association, with whom we prepare a number of quality professional gatherings on the current issues in the field of hunting and fishing.
The objective of the fair is to promote and develop the hunting and fishing tourism, to present new products and equipment to distributors, hunters and fishermen as well as to emphasize the possibility of developing hunting tourism in the continental area of Croatia in harmony with nature. In this context, in addition to the exhibition segment, the content of this event includes an educational and professional programme that wants to emphasize the potentials and direct importance of hunting in preserving and maintenance of nature - trends and legal provisions in order to protect game and fish and their natural habitats.
The Hunting and Fishing Days will be held in the pavilion 8 of Zagreb Fair.
This fair is an unavoidable annual meeting place for numerous hunters, fishermen, producers, traders and associations in this part of Europe.
