Today, intensive fish hatching in enclosed ponds is considered as one of the most profitable activities in Vojvodina, consequently leading to construction of large number of fish ponds in this area. Fish ponds as hydrographic objects are planned and designed at various localities. First, the localities were abandoned river meanders, then, depressions made by digging out of clay and loess, and finally, fish ponds were built intentionally for the purposes of breeding fish. The municipality of Sremska Mitrovica comprises several important hydrographic objects, among which the largest one is the Sava river, then several fresh water ponds and fish ponds. In the immediate vicinity of the town (in the north and southeast) there are two fish ponds - the fish pond ′Proleće′(spring) and the fish pond owned by Nature Conservation Movement, which are both used for economic, sports and recreation, tourism, education and aesthetics purposes. This paper discusses the distribution of fish ponds, their physical and geographical features origin and morphometric features, the regime and water quality, flora and fauna and their economic and other impacts.
