For most Hungarian people, the word “Balaton” means a joyful holiday. For the inhabitants around the lake, it is more about the workers’ everyday life. And for the ones who are working on the water it is life itself. Nowadays, there are fewer and fewer fishermen working on the waves of the Balaton. The generation whose livelihood depended on the good catch has already passed by. Most of the fishing on Lake Balaton is done by one big company, but it hasn’t always been like that. Just like the shore of the seas, the bank of the Balaton used to be a paradise for fishermen for hundreds of years.
