Item description for Pisciculture et peche dans les eaux princieres en Franche-Comte aux XIV et XV siecles (Burgundica) by P. Gresser...
As freshwater fish were highly prized, rivers and lakes formed a significant part of the domain of the Counts of Burgundy in the late Middle Ages. To exploit this particular part of his estates in Franche-Comte, Duke-Count Eudes IV (1330-1349) created a new office, the "gruerie", responsible for the administration and management of national waters and forests. This study is the second volume in a set of three dedicated to royal waters and forests in Burgundy in the XIV and XV centuries. It is a sequel to the description of the office of the "gruerie", illustrating its application to running and "stagnant" waters (the lakes), two very different fishing environments as the first, in its natural state, forms a contrast with man-made fishing reserves.
