Other Site Characteristics

The freshwater lake Voulkaria is situated in the northwestern part of Aitoloakarnania prefecture and southwards of the Amvrakikos gulf entrance. It covers an area of approximately 940 ha. This area shows strong water level fluctuations depending on the annual rainfall. Voulkaria is a shallow lake with maximum depth of 2.5 m. The greatest part of the plain surrounding the lake comprises mainly a series of streams and smaller water courses with varying deposits. Peat formation takes place in wetland areas where no agricultural activities are present. Voulkaria has vague marshy sides and is connected to the sea by an artificial ditch with a length of 1400 m. Saltini (or Salini) is a very shallow salt or brackish, coastal lake, which covers an area of about 210 ha. It is situated in the northern part of the peninsula, to the south of Aktio airport. The area around it is of flat relief and extended agricultural fields and grasslands occur there. At the eastern of the lake, extensive fields with olive trees and grassland are observed. On the northern side of the lake beside the dirt road, which separates this site from the airport, grasslands with Asphodelus aestivus, Dittrichia viscosa, Romulea bulbocodium etc., exist.

4.2 Quality and importance

Voulkaria is a sizable lake, which is in very good condition and has beautiful scenery. It is surrounded by an extensive reed-bed of considerable width, which varies from 10-500 m. Many threatened bird taxa are included in the very interesting local avifauna. These two lakes also offer irrigation to the surrounding area and are widely used for fishing. Both lakes are so far poorly studied and after further investigation data on their quality can be gained.
