  1. Fascinating field trip, Granyia. An obvious question given all the nice water: How’s fishing in the maars? Too much volcanic outgassing perhaps? Cheers –


    • Thanks agimarc! I have been told that the maars are great for fishing; exept for protected areas and nature reserves. They hold various fresh water fish including eel, carp and pike. There is some minor degassing but probably not as much as to affect the water quality.


  2. Thank you for this article, we have visited this region several times and it is one of our favourite parts of Europe. I now know a lot more about maars and will pontificate accordingly on our next visit! 🙂
