The effectiveness of fishery development depends on the ability to apply the latest technological achievements. In this situation, the development of fisheries in individual countries must take into account, regardless of the condition of fish resources and their consumption traditions, also the technical potential and professional training of fishermen. It is related to the system and organization of education and research. The study presents the principles of the Polish fisheries education system educating specialists at the professional level, in technical schools, at maritime colleges and universities, with the specification of fields and specializations of education, as well as titles and qualifications obtained after graduation. The number of foreign specialists educated in various types of schools in Poland is also given, along with examples of positions currently held by some graduates in scientific and economic institutions of their countries and international organizations. Forms of advice and assistance in the organization of fishing education in various countries by Poland are presented. The study also presents a proposal for further training of fishing staff in Poland. Taking into account the conditions of a given country, its needs and the level of education, various forms of training were presented directly in the countries concerned. Regardless of the typical training activities, the achievements and offers of technical services that Poland can perform in the field of training, organization of education, construction of schools and research laboratories and conducting scientific research were also presented.
