On 7 and 8 October 2021 a scientific conference has taken place in the scenic town of Český Krumlov in South Bohemia.
A professional exchange on a Central European was held on the following topics:
- Current status of freshwater mussels and conservation strategies in Central Europe (special focus Freshwater Pearlmussel FPM)
- Captive breeding, rearing and reintroduction of
