As the WFD requires carrying out regular quality assessment of fish population, in the frame of this study sampling was done in 3 sites along Lumebardhi i Pejes river.
A list of species composition is completed. Altogether 9 fish species and lamprey (Eudontomyzon stankokaramani) were present in catch. The classification of the ecological status is done by using EFI index. The Lumebardhi i Pejes River is an ecosystem with relatively favorable ecological conditions for the development of ichthyofauna but because of direct negative anthropogenic impact in different forms ( as gravel excavation etc), the development of ichthyofauna is on the decline..
