Other Site Characteristics

Saline shallow lagoon surrounded by wide reed beds.

4.2 Quality and importance

Saline shallow lagoon, partly overgrown (marginally) with reedbeds. Very important stop-over for migrating and wintering waterfowl, waders, gulls, terns and other water-connected species of birds. The marsh with its rich Chironomid fauna is a suitable foraging habitat for bats. In the surroundings there are restricted steppe areas, suitable for some rare steppe mammals. The Shabla-Ezerets lakes are brackish basins connected each other by artificial channel. They are situated next to the Black Sea. Among the permanent inhabitants 6 fish species are included in the Bulgarian Red Book as "threatened", 5 species are under protection of the Bern Convention and 3 species are included in the CORINE programme.
