Freshwater fish culture in the pond cascade in the catchment area of Jevanský brook is for the long time considerable part of the University Forest Establishment´s activities. This cascade was founded in 17th century and consists of 10 ponds - Poár, Louňovský, Pařez, Vylovský, Ján, vejcar, Jevanský, Pilský, Nohavička, áchovec. Total area of water surfaces is cca 72 ha large. This region is influenced by plenty of factors, the most important are listed below:
Indispensable purpose of the pond cascade inheres in water management point of view. The effect of water-bearing capacity was remarkable especially in the year 2002 when flow rate of Jevanský brook was decreased and serious flood was inhibited. The pond Ján is used for commercial - tourism purposes especially competitive fishing. On the other hand there are investigated chemical and physical conditions of the water reserves (supply), the Czech University of Life Sciences organizes practical excursions for students hitherward. The persons concerned in the accomplishment of student thesis participate in elaboration of research projects. We investigate both the quality of fish meat and the quality of water sources to deliver delicious meat.
