4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover
N01100.00

Total Habitat Cover

100

Other Site Characteristics

Site marin côtier. * Forte fréquentation touristique et de loisirs, comme sur l'ensemble du littoral de la région PACA. * Présence de l'espèce invasive Caulerpa racemosa. * Présence de mouillages forains qui impactent fortement l'herbier à posidonies.

4.2 Quality and importance

La baie de La Ciotat et des Lecques constitue l'un des rares sites régionaux en mode relativement abrité de l'habitat " 1120 herbiers de posidonies ". Ces herbiers se développent jusqu'à l'isobathe -35 m environ. Les fonds rocheux présentent également une grande diversité : importants éboulis, surplombs, concrétionnements coralligènes, champs de gorgones. Les basses températures (autour de 13°C toute l'année) et les phénomènes d'upwelling (remontée des eaux profondes sous l'effet du mistral) favorisent la présence d'espèces originales des plus grandes profondeurs. Le passage d'une faune pélagique riche (thons, liches) est à signaler.
