Fish farm in Põlula

The Põlula Fish Farm is located in Lavi Village, Lääne-Viru County, on the western edge of the forest mass of Alutaguse, on the north-eastern slope of the Pandivere uplands, at an average elevation of 67 metres above sea level. It is known that fish have been raised by the outflow of Lavi spring for at least 120 years. The first written records of fisheries originate from 1895, when Hermann von Krause, the owner of the Põlula estate, showcased live brown trout raised in the Põlula at an agricultural exhibition in Riga.
