fluvial \ˈflü-vē-əl\ adjective: of, relating to, or living in a stream or river
Etymology: Middle English, from Latin fluvialis, from fluvius river, from fluere
This word is virtually identical in Italian: fluviale. One would say “porto fluviale” (river port) or “pesca fluviale” (freshwater fishing).
