179. Master Plan Migratory Fish Rhine

The Master Plan Migratory Fish Rhine is supposed to indicate how self sustaining, stable populations of migratory fish can again be settled in the Rhine watershed as far as the Basel area within both reasonable time and costs. On 18 October 2007, the Conference of Rhine Ministers confirmed its intent to gradually restore river continuity in the Rhine as far as Basel and in the waters under the salmon programme.

Based on achievements so far, the „Master Plan“ defines priorities for a phased implementation of measures, lists orders of magnitude for costs and indicates further required investigations.
