The EC Freshwater Fish Directive (78/659/EEC), adopted on 18 July 1978, seeks to protect those fresh water bodies identified by Member States as waters suitable for sustaining fish populations. For those waters it sets physical and chemical water quality objectives for salmonid waters and cyprinid waters. The Directive will be repealed in 2013 by the EC Water Framework Directive. Deadline for responses: 8 September 2003.
