  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • 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)

3.2 Species referred to in Article 4 of Directive 2009/147/EC and listed in Annex II of Directive 92/43/EEC and site evaluation for them

  • 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

El espacio marino Arrecifes de Roquetas de Mar se localiza en el golfo de Almería, frente a las costas del municipio de Roquetas de Mar. Se encuentra dentro de la unidad estructural conocida como zona Bética. En relación a la geomorfología, la plataforma, relativamente amplia, presenta en el espacio marino protegido una pendiente atenuada hasta los 20 m de profundidad, desde donde se vuelve más acusada hasta los 80 m. El sustrato dentro del espacio marino es fundamentalmente arenoso. Las masas de agua que bañan las costas del poniente almeriense forman parte del mar de Alborán. Dentro de este marco, el espacio marino protegido se localiza en un área netamente mediterránea, donde la dirección predominante de las corrientes es E.

4.2 Quality and importance

El espacio marino Arrecifes de Roquetas de Mar se caracteriza por presentar praderas de Posidonia bien desarrolladas. Frente a la ribera de la Algaida, la pradera forma un singular arrecife barrera de elevado interés por ser uno de los pocos arrecifes de Posidonia oceanica que sobreviven en el litoral Mediterráneo. Entre las especies con presencia en las praderas de Posidonia, destacar la presencia de la nacra (Pinna nobilis), especie incluida en el Anexo IV de la Directiva Hábitat.
