Short description: Development, Evaluation & Implementation of a Standardised Fish-based Assessment Method for the Ecological Status of European Rivers - A Contribution to the Water Framework Directive (FAME) 
Long description: Different fish-based methods are used throughout Europe and the world to assess the ecological status of rivers. The objectives of work package 3 were to review these methods, summarise the common components, and identify and classify distinct metrics and sampling procedures. The main outputs of the work package were to propose a selection of metrics to be tested on the large fish database as well as to define standardised river-type-specific procedures which for the field evaluation in work package 9.
