Welcome

Water is not a commercial product like any other but, rather, a heritage which must be protected, defended and treated as such (EU Water Framework Directive)

Welcome to the WFD Fish website – an online resource for information on fish monitoring for the Water Framework Directive (WFD) in Ireland.

The responsibility of monitoring fish for the WFD has been assigned to Inland Fisheries Ireland (previously the Central and Regional Fisheries Boards) with over 300 sites encompassing lakes, rivers and transitional waters (estuaries) being monitored throughout the country on a three year rolling programme.

Use the menus above and left to find out more about the WFD and fish, view the WFD fish map viewer, or to download reports on each survey.
