Chełkowski Z., Filipiak J., Chełkowska B., 2001. Studies on ichthyofauna from an archaeological excavation on Wolin-Town (Site 1, Pit 6). Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 31 (1): 61-80.

In sixteen early medieval settlement layers of the Wolin-Town, which correspond chronologically to the period from 7th to mid 13th century, the occurrence of 16 463 bone remains of fishes was stated, of which 9 799 pieces were identified anatomically and their specific affiliation was determined. These bones as well as scales found in the excavation belonged to 27 fish species. Amongst them were 13 cyprinid and 3 salmonid species. Based on the comparative study of the bones, a total of 4 645 fish were determined and their estimated weight amounted to 9 308 kg. The quantitative dominants were: Stizostedion lucioperca L. (31.6%), Abramis brama L. (26.2%), Perca fluviatilis (15.5%) and Rutilus rutilus L. (11.3%). The total weight dominants were: Stizostedion lucioperca L. (36.4%), Acipenser sturio L. (35.4%), and Abramis brama L. (14.8%).
