Abstract:

The surface of game funds from Harghita County amounts to 593.944 ha gathered in 45 funds. They are characterized by a moderately continental climate in Sub-Carpathian hills and a mountain climate in the high areas. Eight species were selected among the county’s main game and fish species, namely bear, fox, capercaillie pine marten, magpie, hooded crow, trout and grayling. The species were classified based on their results from 19 criteria (harvesting period, harvested quantity by one worker in eight hours, harvesting cost, harvesting knowledge, required instruments, the harvesting process’s complexity, distribution array, biotic threats, abiotic threats, perishability, market potential, market request, the product’s market “popularity”, raw product price, derived product price, derived products portfolio, transport from the harvesting place to the storage center). Grades from 1 to 8 were given to each analyzed species by specialists. As such, the most important species are the trout and, grayling while the species with the smallest percentage were hooded crow and magpie. The species’ harvesting and distribution potential as well as their diversity in the county are high as both the forest and fish areas are very well represented. In this way, the game and fish species with a high interest have the space and environment in which to reproduce and develop.
