Management and conservation of Ohrid trout, the most important endemic species of this lake, is one of the main issues of collaboration between the two transboundary states. The decline of fishing amount during the years is improved by the artificial fertilization of koran applied both in Macedonia and Albania. Thereby, lake Ohrid reinhabited with about one million offsprings of Salmo letnica per year, only from the Albanian part. The technical enhancement of artificial fertilization makes possible the considerable increase of the koran amount in the hunting period. Meanwhile, the koran summer form, Salmo letnica aestivalis has resulted in a decrease of the fishing amount according to data fishermen. The main purpose of this paper is to show that the management of koran artificial fertilization is directly connected with the fishing amount. So the enlargement of artificial fertilization even in summer time, for the Albanian part, will result in the fishing summer form increased.
