Abstract: 
Holbina-Dunavat area (S=5630 ha) has been studied from 1994 in order to establish a strategy for ecological restoration by a reintegration of the fish farm basins with the surrounding wetlands by opening the ring dikes around the basins. The positive effects are both ecological (wetland restoration, natural habitat and breeding area for fish and aquatic birds) and socio-economical (development of traditional activities, fishing, livestock and reed harvesting, creation of recreational areas for ecotourism) for the local people.
