4. SITE DESCRIPTION

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover

0

Other Site Characteristics

The area is of great importance due to the presence of well-developed Posidonia beds (Habitat Type 1120) which cover the largest part of the infralittoral zone, at depths between 5-35m. Although poorly assessed and studied in a Mediterranean-wide scale, the detritic and rhodolith beds of this site are also of significant conservation importance.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is located in the eastern part of Evvoia Island from Cape Oktonia (North) to Zarakes beach (South) and 1.5nm off. This fully marine site spans about 58 km2 of seabed, frequently exceeding depths of 200m. The coasts are exposed to intensive wave action and the sea bed exhibits high inclination. This marine area is characterized by the existence of Posidonia beds, mainly at depths between 5-35m. In the shallow zone (<10m) these meadows present formations (ecomorphosis) of reefs, in some cases reaching up to 2m in height. Habitat Type 1170 is also ubiquitous and extended, characterized by either dense and well preserved Cystoseira communities on the infralittoral rocky shores and reefs, or various facies of coralligenous assemblages on its deeper, circalittoral counterpart (>30m). Extensive detritic and rhodolith beds (important deep subtypes for Habitat Type 1110) dominate the circalittoral sedimentary bottoms of the area.
