The inland fishing is the fishing in inland waters (usually in freshwater). It includes river and lake fishing, pond farming and aquaculture systems .

In Germany, aquaculture, including pond farming, has the greatest economic importance. In 2007 more than 80% of the total catch of almost 56,000 t of fish was achieved in carp ponds, continuous and recirculation systems and in net cages. The most economically important edible fish species were rainbow trout (24,000 t) and carp (15,000 t).
