The main professional achievement:
The creation and leading of the Fish Ecology Unit (http://www.fishecu.cz/). The unit was created under the auspices of the Institute of Hydrobiology, Biology Centre AS CR in order to develop the research of fish communities of large inland waters on required quantitative level. This required large-scale research activities involving numerous staff highly exceeding the possibilities of the institutional funding of the IHB. The bulk of Unit activity is financed by external bodies through projects and contracts. The Unit revolutionized the methodology of fish studies of lakes and reservoirs and become leading group in fish sampling science. The Unit succeeded in creating of a strong team of postdocs and students of all levels and started the new period in sampling large waters.
