Other Site Characteristics

The site is a part of the river valley of the Kayakliyka River. The river runs through arable land in the Upper Tracian Lowland. There are tree vegetation and bushes along the banks.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is a fauna bio-corridor linking the Maritsa II site and the Dragoyna-Mechkovets site. There are hydro-technical facilities (dams), which form an obstacle for the fish migration.In table "Ecological Information - Other Important species", the species justified by 'A-National' are not necessarily included in the National Red Data Book, because its last edition is too old (1985), not up-dated and has no legislative value. The species indicated by 'A-National' are the protected flora and fauna species, included in the Bulgarian Biodiversity Act, and therefore this motivation is given highest priority. The Sabanejewia aurata found within the site has recently been identified as Sabanejewia balcanica, derived from Sabanejewia aurata balcanica subspecies.
