Legal classification of a watercourse based on the dominant species and worthy of protection. In principle, the river is classified in the first category when the dominant group consists of salmonids (salmon, trout) and in the second category, when the dominant group is composed of cyprinids (carp, barbel, roach, etc.). This classification determines the fishing practices.
