Other Site Characteristics

Lago de origen cárstico de gran interés científico y paisajístico, de características únicas, dado que es uno de los grandes lagos cársticos de Cataluña. Su situación geográfica a una altitud de 1000 m determina su elevado interés biológico, con comunidades acuáticas y de ribera, como Potamogetonion, Phragmition y Magnocaricion. Constituye el hábitat de notables especies ligadas al medio acuático, como Limnea stagnalis. Se practican usos turístico-recreativos, la pesca deportiva y aprovechamiento de los huertos.

Los límites de este espacio han sido trazados de acuerdo con la cartografía topográfica y planimétrica de referencia, a escala 1:50.000, del Instituto Cartográfico de Catalunya, que es el instituto cartográfico oficial y competente de la Generalitat de Catalunya.Los mapas facilitados para formalizar la propuesta de este espacio y definir su delimitación, citados en más adelante en este formulario, tienen la misma precisión de detalles, y la misma calidad, que los mapas de la cartografía topográfica y planimétrica de referencia, a escala 1:50.000, que publica con carácter oficial el Instituto Cartográfico de Catalunya.Estos mapas son la referencia, si no se indica lo contrario, de los detalles de descripción planimétrica, topográfica y/o toponímica que se puedan dar en este formulario.El 100.00% del espacio está incluido en el 'Pla d'Espais d'Interès Natural' (PEIN), aprobado por el Decreto 328/1992 de la Generalitat de Catalunya. En concreto este 100.00% pertenece al PEIN Estany de Montcortès. La inclusión de este porcentaje en el PEIN implica un grado de protección en parte del lugar que no queda reflejado en el Apartado 5.1 del formulario, ya que la figura PEIN no está recogida en el mismo.
