  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover
N01100.00

Total Habitat Cover

100

Other Site Characteristics

Vaste zone marine à forte concentration trophique qui attire poissons pélagiques et avifaune marine. Risques de pollutions et de collisions accidentelles liées au trafic maritime, naufrage de pétroliers

4.2 Quality and importance

La zone fait partie de l'ensemble " côte aquitaine ". Elle est constituée essentiellement d'une dépression sédimentaire en aspect de "couloir", ( sédiments sableux fins à très fins), permettant la circulation de la masse d'eau du plateau aquitain du nord au sud sous l'influence du courant landais du Médoc. Ce courant met la zone sous influence du panache de la Gironde. La position géographique et les aspects géomorphologiques et hydrodynamiques du secteur donnent à la zone un intérêt halieutique grâce à la concentration d'espèces pélagiques . L'avifaune marine et la faune pélagique exploitent ces resoources trophiques aux différentes saisons, en particulier à l'automne et en hiver qui voient le regroupement de nombreuses espèces de passage, ou hivernantes, comme le Puffin des baléares.
