ABSTRACT. The aim of this paper was to analyze comprehensively recreational fisheries in the Vistula Lagoon in 2012. The research was conducted with questionnaire surveys. The number of fishing permits issued in the 2000-2012 period was also analyzed. The structure of recreational fishing catches was characterized by the domination of predatory species such as perch and pikeperch. Recreational fishing from 2011 and 2012 were compared to illustrate changes occurring in this fishery in the Vistula Lagoon.
