Final Report - EFI+ (Improvement and spatial extension of the European Fish Index)

Project ID: 44096
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES


The EU-funded EFI+ project aimed to develop river assessment methods, based on fish assemblages, in accordance to the contents of the European water framework directive (WFD). The project revised the existing European fish index (EFI) so as to increase its applicability and improve its performance.

This final activity report refers to the existing state of the art and analyses EFI+ objectives. In addition, the implemented methodology is summarised and the research results are presented and evaluated. Particular focus is given on the applied approach for EFI development as well as on the observed proposal limitations. Finally, the document highlights the undertaken dissemination actions and pinpoints the perspectives for future exploitation and refinement of the project outcomes.
