ABSTRACT. Questionnaire studies were carried out on 11 special fishing grounds for anglers in Poland. Data were collected on production and economic parameters characterising these fishing grounds. Three groups of fishing grounds for anglers were distinguished based on species composition of the catch, but also the degree to which the respondents had completed the questionnaire forms. Basic production and economic parameters were analysed. Question whether it was justified to classify some water bodies as special fishing grounds for anglers was thoroughly discussed.
