Rivers in Epirus Greece

July 18th 2014

We are studying habitat requirements of river fishes, especially the local trout. Now working in a river in Epirus in northwestern Greece. The trout here are especially large-sized since this is within a fairly well protected national park. We snorkeled in waters that are the coldest large river waters in this country - it was 10.3 C this midday on this spring-fed river. Northern Pindos National Park does need special care and the West Balkan Trout Salmo fariodes is a conservation icon that must be cherished.

I will try to post more about our work in the near future.For further information on the Habitat Suitability research of fishes for ecological flow management see our site at
