Austria's rivers and lakes are amongst the cleanest in the world.

The majority of these lakes claim the purity of drinking water, and the countless brooks and rivers are home to many classic freshwater fish species. Freshwater fish farms and aqua culture are also of the highest quality, providing a supply of healthy fish. White wines work wonders with trout, brook trout, white fish, grayling, pike perch, Danube salmon, freshwater salmon, carp, tench, catfish amongst others. A light-bodied, red wine served slightly chilled is incidentally a great partner to Serbian-style pike perch in garlic. The choice of wine is entirely up to the nature of the recipe and personal preferences.
