    The winter diet of the great cormorant was studied in three sites on the River Vltava in Vyšší Brod, in Prague and at Slapy Reservoir, Czech Republic. At all three sites, roach (Rutilus rutilus), bream (Abramis brama), bleak (Alburnus alburnus), European chub (Squalius cephalus), European perch (Perca fluviatilis) and ruffe (Gymnocephalus cernuus) made up at least 74.2 % of the cormorants’ diet. A great potential for fish stock losses was identified for the River Vltava at Vyšší Brod and in Prague where the loss of fish due to overwintering great cormorants was estimated to be 22 kg ha–1 and up to 79 kg ha–1 respectively, i.e. belonging among the highest ever published figures for fish withdrawal caused by great cormorants from any inland waters (carp fishponds excluded). Most probably, both great cormorants and anglers are responsible for the decrease in catches of brown trout (Salmo trutta m. fario) and grayling (Thymallus thymallus) from the River Vltava in Vyšší Brod.
