Other Site Characteristics

Le site est axé sur le cours inférieur du fleuve Aude, à l'intérieur du système de digues qui le canalise. Il englobe ainsi des lambeaux de la végétation rivulaire qui ne peut être qualifiée de ripisylve du fait de son importante dégradation sur la plupart du linéaire concerné. Le site inclut également un espace maritime délimité dans la bande des 3 miles. Vulnérabilité induite par la présence d'un barrage à sel. Les travaux prévus sur la partie amont du site pour assurer la sécurité des populations en cas d'inondations (plusieurs victimes en 1999) devront intégrer les enjeux liés à l'intérêt piscicole du cours d'eau.

4.2 Quality and importance

Ce site permet la reproduction d'espèces migratrices vulnérables (Alose feinte, Lamproie marine), en forte régression depuis la prolifération des ouvrages sur les cours d'eau. Ce site permet de faire le lien entre l'affluent Orbieu et la mer et de disposer ainsi pour les poissons d'un système fluviatile complet (sur deux sites) depuis le haut du bassin versant jusqu'à la mer. L'extension en mer permet également d'intégrer les zones de regroupement avant la remontée des poissons vers leurs frayères.
