Establishment of the extant range and status of the Corfu toothcarp (Valencia letourneuxi) in southern Albania. Project will gain new knowledge on this critically endangered species through intensive field surveys, cooperation and initiatives with local partners. The aim is a better understanding of the conservation needs of this fish, which should eventually lead to the recovery and establishment of a healthy sub-population in the Albanian part of its small range.

Strategic Direction: 2 Support the sustainable management of water catchments through integrated approaches for the conservation of threatened freshwater biodiversity
