Nearly 2,000 cormorants prey on fish in Komárom-Esztergom County on the Danube River in winter. According to the necropsy experiment, the bird eats half a kilo of fish every day to survive. The wintering birds in the province catch 1,500 kg of fish from the river every day they spend here.

Dániel Zoltai added that there is an abundance of fish in the living waters thanks to government support and farms implemented by the association itself.

The fishermen and fishermen cooperating with them do not aim to exterminate the cormorants, but because of the damage they cause, it is necessary to regulate the stock.
