  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

PSCI Novo Selo is located in the uppermost section of the Danube river accessible to fish migrating upstream due to Iron Gate Dam. This is the best available place for fish that prefer to spawn in the upper part of the river. Shingle and coarse sand substrate of the river bottom favor fish that lay eggs that are drifted by the bottom layer. During high waters the riverbed reaches depth of 20 m and width of about 1000 m. The ecological condition of the river is good (4 out of the five-point ecological scale).

4.2 Quality and importance

Section of the Danube River within the riverbed. An important migration corridor for shad. "Stepping stone" bio-corridor of great importance for the geographical coherence of the network in terms of conservationally valuable Danubian ichthyofauna.

4.5 Documentation

Initial proposal and description of the site made by Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. New data provided by project "Mapping and assessment of the conservation status of the natural habitats and species - Phase 1" (see link).
