The applicant worked for 25 years in the IT industry and did not have any previous education or experience in the agricultural or fishery sectors. She moved to the countryside and started a project with her daughter. The aim of the “Trout Ojcowski” fish farm is to restore brown trout breeding, promote environmentally conscious and ethical breeding, and to educate the community about the history of the region and culinary traditions.
The innovativeness of the project lies primarily in its focus on breeding a unique species in a natural and original way, combined with modern methods of sale and communication.
