Other Site Characteristics

Phyllophora fields are a bioengineered habitat type unique to the Black Sea, consisting of extensive stands of perennial red algae (genera Phyllophora, Coccotylus) developing on circalittoral hard substrata and a highly diverse associated fauna. Zernov’s Phyllophora Field - located on the northwestern shelf of the Black Sea - is the largest, comprising the world’s most abundant stands of Phyllophoraceae. In its pristine state (1950s-1960s) Zernov’s Phyllophora Field used to have a southern lobe extending into the Romanian Black Sea. During the 1970s and 1980s the Northwestern Black Sea was heavily impacted by eutrophication and this resulted in the reduction of Zernov’s Phyllophora Field by several orders of magnitude, only a small nucleus surviving inside Odessa Bay. The diversity of the associated fauna and flora was also severely reduced (a 75% decrease in the species richness of macroalgae). Starting with 2004 a trend of slow recovery of Zernov’s Phyllophora Field has been detected by Ukrainian scientists. During COCOBLAS 2013 cruise of the R/V “Mare Nigrum” (August 2013) we have found that Zernov’s Phyllophora Field is again present in the Romanian Black Sea, after a hiatus of over 40 years.;

4.2 Quality and importance

Campul de Phyllophora al lui Zernov este unic in lume. Partea situata in apele ucrainiene este deja constituita ca arie marina protejata.Acest habitat unic si cu importanta ecologica ridicata trebuie protejat si in Romania. ;

6.3 Conservation measures (optional)

Masurile de conservare care se impun a fi luate se refera in primul rand la interzicerea pescuitului cu orice fel de unelte active (traulare, dragare). De asemenea trebuie interzise si alte activitati care sunt de natura sa afecteze integritatea habitatelor bentice (de ex. extractia de sedimente)
