  • 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

Comunidades de fanerógamas marinas de Zostera noltii y Ruppia maritima. La Spartina maritima ocupa considerables extensiones en los dominios de sedimentación. Thero-Salicornietea; Arthrocnemetea.

4.2 Quality and importance

Importantes formaciones de Spartina y Juncus maritimus, así como una buena representación de Halimione portulacoides. En la zona interna de la ría se desarrolla un importante carrizal de Phragmites australis. Es destacable la presencia del endemismo Cochelaria aestuarica. La Ría de Foz presenta interés para la invernada de anátidas (>300) y para los estacionamientos durante los pasos migratorios de Espátula Comun (Platalea leucorodia) y de limícolas. Hay que destacar la presencia de Salmón Atlántico (Salmo salar) en el río Masma.
