Mediterranean Assessment

The status and distribution of freshwater fish endemic to the Mediterranean basin

Mediterranean Basin Endemic Fish Assessment

The project involved assessing the status and distribution of all freshwater fishes endemic to the Mediterranean Basin.

In December 2004 the IUCN Mediterranean Office hosted and funded a workshop to assess the status and distribution of all freshwater fishes endemic to the Mediterranean Basin. During the workshop around 20 fish experts from the region did excellent work in evaluating the baseline assessments of 253 species as previously compiled by Dr. Alain Crivelli, resulting in this report.
