This dataset represents a snapshot taken in September 2016 for the purpose of the WFD RBMP Cycle 2.

This is a table of the protected rivers that are designated in the Salmonid Regulations (S.I. 293 / 1988). WFD River Network Routes designated as Designated Salmonid Waters under S.I. No. 293/1988 - European Communities (Quality of Salmonid Waters) Regulations 1988, 14th August 1988.

The Council Directive 78/659/EEC of 18 July 1978 on the quality of fresh waters needing protection or improvement in order to support fish life and the Council Directive 92/42/EEC of the 21st May 1992 on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora was transposed into Irish law under the Fish Directive S.I. 293/1988 and Habitats Directive S.I. 477/2011. 1.http://eur-lex.europa.eu/smartapi/cgi/sga_doc?smartapi!celexapi!prod!CELEXnumdoc&numdoc=31978L0659&model=guichett 2.http://ec.europa.eu/environment/nature/legislation/habitatsdirective/index_en.htm 3.http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/1988/en/si/0293.html 4.http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/2011/en/si/0477.html

Provenance information This dataset represents a snapshot taken in September 2016 for the purpose of the WFD RBMP Cycle 2. Salmonid waters are included within the Register as areas protected for water dependent species and habitats. The protected areas for Salmonid species are comprised of the 34 Salmonid rivers, tributaries and lakes listed in the Salmonid Regulations (S.I. 293 / 1988). These Regulations also prescribe quality standards for salmonid waters, the sampling programmes and the methods of analysis and inspection to be used by local authorities to determine compliance with the standards. The Salmonid Regulations designate the "waters capable of supporting salmon (Salmo salar), trout (Salmo trutta), char (Salvelinus) and whitefish (Coregonus)" as protected. In contrast, the Habitat regulations (S.I. 94 / 1997) protect the habitats of Atlantic Salmon only. For this reason, the Salmonid Regulations are contained within the Register independently from the Habitat Regulations. The table contains the name of each Slamonid river segment, the segment code (for joining with the river segments) and a protected area code which are unique incremental numbers. Provision of Salmonid Water designations by Department of Agriculture, Ireland. Salmonid Waters Areas were selected to form the Register of Protected Areas under the Salmonid Waters Act.
