It serves calibration and verification functions by performing calibrations in the fields of: heat,
force, balance, pressure, mass, and dimension tape. Services needed by our Laboratories and by

7.3. Fishery
As a result of limnology survey and study on
fishing for conservation and development
of aquaculture in dam reservoirs, 155 dam
reservoirs have been permitted for
commercial fishing so far. Total 12,500 ton
aquaculture with 30 diverse species acquired
via fishing in 2010. Total production is
110,000 ton including cage fishing being
carried out dam reservoir purpose of which
is other than domestic water supply.
In order to propagate and restock dam
reservoirs, 25 million various fish fingerlings mainly common carp are propagated at DSİ Fishery
Research & Propagation Centers; İzmir-Ürkmez, Adana-Seyhan, Amasya-Yedikır, Elazığ-Keban,
Edirne-İpsala and Şanlıurfa-Atatürk Dam then they are restocked into dam reservoirs.
Within the scope of Research and Development for propagating new species are propagated at
DSİ Fishery Research&Propagation Centers; Tor grypus at Atatürk Dam Research &
Propagation Center, Silurus glanis at Elazığ-Keban Research & Propagation Center, Acipenser
gueldenstaedtii and Acipenser stellatus at Amasya-Yedikır Research & Propagation Center.
Concerning studies on fish passes, acquired knowledge on existing regulators, inspection on the
application of the projects, and selection of proper fish pass type as per fish fauna are conducted.
