  • 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)

4. SITE DESCRIPTION

Back to top

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover
N01100.00

Total Habitat Cover

100

Other Site Characteristics

Aguas costeras que rodean la isla de Formentera y una parte del sur de Ibiza, así como los islotes de Es Freus (islotes del canal entre Ibiza y Formentera). Entre ellos destacan los de Espalmador y Espardell. La profundidad máxima es de poco más de 200 m, siendo en general inferior a los 100 m. El sector occidental de la zona está bajo la influencia directa de la corriente superficial que fluye en dirección noreste por las costas del poniente de Baleares, generando una zona de frente, de elevada productividad, que algunos peces pelágicos utilizan para desovar. Los fondos están cubiertos, principalmente, por fangos, mientras existen algunas zonas con rocas al sur de Formentera, y de arena y grava al oeste.

4.2 Quality and importance

Espacio marino asociado a diversas colonias de cría situadas en la isla de Formentera, en el sur de Ibiza y en los islotes del canal de Es Freus, que separa estas islas. Aquí se encuentran las colonias de cría de pardela balear (Puffinus mauretanicus) más importantes del mundo, así como importantes colonias de paíño europeo (Hydrobates pelagicus) y gaviota de Audouin (Larus audouinii), entre otras. También es una importante zona de alimentación para el cormorán moñudo (Phalacrocorax aristotelis desmarestii), que cría en diversos puntos de la costa e islotes asociados.
