Due to a large interest of exhibitors and visitors, Hunting and Fishing Days have successfully returned to the Calendar of Events in February, only four months after the last edition. This time the fair is held in parallel with ZAGREB BOAT SHOW, HOTEL&GASTRO and OLIVE FESTIVAL that are expected to attract more than 30,000 visitors.

HUNTING AND FISHING DAYS are supported by the City of Zagreb, the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Croatia, the Croatian Hunting Federation and the Croatian Sport Fishing Federation with whom we prepare a number of quality professional gatherings to deal with current topics in the field of hunting and fishing.

The aim of the fair is to promote and develop hunting and fishing tourism, to present new products and the equipment to distributors and to highlight the possibility of developing hunting tourism in the continental Croatia in harmony with nature. In this context, apart from the exhibition segment this fair also includes an educational and professional programme, which emphasizes the potential and the direct significance of hunting for nature conservation and preservation - trends and legal provisions intended for the protection of the game, fish and their natural habitats.

Hunting and Fishing Days will be held in the pavilion 6 of the Zagreb Fair.

For all visitors of the Hunting and Fishing Days a rich and very interesting accompanying programme has been organized.

At the space of the Croatian Shooting Federation and the Zagreb Shooting Association all interested visitors will be able to try shooting with an air gun, laser, bow and arrow.

For our youngest visitors we organize various educational workshops.

Within the scope of the professional programme, on Friday, 22 February a lecture will be held on the topic: Getting hunters familiar with the African swine fever and the measures to prevent its spreading to the Republic of Croatia.

Today, when the number of inhabitants living in cities is increasing excessively, it is a great privilege to have nature as a part of the city but also a large responsibility to protect nature for future generations. Preserving biodiversity in large cities is of great importance for the protection of nature and the improvement of the quality of life of the city population.

Despite great advances in knowledge and awareness of nature conservation, many people still have prejudices about wildlife, especially about snakes. Snakes should not be feared, but respected because of their important role in maintaining the natural balance.

The Zoological Garden of Zagreb will present to the visitors of the Hunting and Fishing Days the most common types of snakes living in Zagreb and its surrounding areas, such as the nose-horned viper (Vipera ammodytes), the European Adder (Vipera berus), the smooth snake (Coronella austriaca), the Aesculapian snake (Zamenis longissimus) and the grass snake (Natrix natrix). Apart from snakes the exhibition will also feature the red-eared slider (Trachemys scripta elegans) in order to get the visitors acquainted with invasive species.

Beside snakes, representatives of many other animal species can be encountered in cities. The educators will provide visitors with more information on them. Visitor education aims at supplementing the existing knowledge, eliminating prejudices and raising the awareness of the importance of coexistence with wild species in urban environments.
