  • 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)

Other Site Characteristics

Area marina costera protegida del viento y del mar dominante

4.2 Quality and importance

Comprende una de las áreas marinas mejor conservadas de Canarias, con buenas condiciones de mar y viento a lo largo del año. Las aguas son las más cálidas del archipiélago, lo que favorece el asentamiento de comunidades con afinidades más tropicales que en otras islas (alta singularidad) y, por tanto, especies no presentes o escasas en el resto de las islas (Panulirus echinatus, Chilomycterus atringa, Aluterus scriptus, etc.). La escasez de plataforma que permite alcanzar grandes rpofundidades a escasa distancia de la costa, favorece la presencia de cetáceos (Tursiops truncatus entre otros) y peces pelágicos, además de se tratarse de una área de descanso y alimentación y varias especies de tortugas marinas (Caretta caretta y Chelonia mydas)
