The Black Drin (Albanian: Drini i Zi; Macedonian: Црн Дрим, Transliterated: Crn Drim, meaning "the black deer") is a river in Albania and the Republic of Macedonia. It flows out of Lake Ohrid in Struga, Macedonia. After approximately 50 km (31 mi) it crosses the border to Albania, west of Debar. It merges with the White Drin in Kukës to form the Drin, which flows into the Adriatic Sea. It drains most of the eastern border region of Albania.

Agriculture

Black Drin in Struga

This part of Albania is an agricultural-based site. The main agricultural products are corn and barley, but the tree-culture is evolving as well. The Ohrid trout, which is a form of salmon, can also be found in parts of the river from time to time.
