Other Site Characteristics

Kalloni's bay is the largest bay of Lesvos. Situated in the SW part of the island it has a surface of 110 Km2, a maximum depth 19 m approximately and a mean depth of 10 m. The marine area covers approximately 80% of the site. It is one of the most important fishery centres of Greece. Towns and villages surrounding the bay have a total population of 11600 inhabitants (1991 census). Geologically the area consists of volcanic rocks and alluvial deposits. The Northern Aegean Sea is one of the main regions in Greece where Yelkouan Shearwaters spend their post-breeding period. During this time shearwaters form large congregations, particularly in areas which are rich in prey. One of these sites is Kallonl Gulf, located In south Lesvos island. It is a semi-enclosed and shallow gulf, with an average and maximum depth of 10 m and 19 m respectively. It Is connected with the rest of the Northern Aegean Sea via a narrow mouth at its southwestern end. The gulf is famous for its abundant fish populations, particularly sardines. Posidonia beds are present in the area. The marine IBA includes the entire marine area of Kalloni Gulf up until the mouth of the gulf at the point of Capes Platy and Kallonl. Mediterranean Monk Seals and dolphins have been recorded in the gulf.Kalloni's bay is the largest bay of Lesvos. Situated in the SW part of the island it has a surface of 110 Km2, a maximum depth 19 m approximately and a mean depth of 10 m. The marine area covers approximately 80% of the site. It is one of the most important fishery centres of Greece. Towns and villages surrounding the bay have a total population of 11600 inhabitants (1991 census). Within the bay and in a depth varying from 10 m to 20 m characteristic VTC (Vases Terrigenes Cotieres) societies are observed. Geologically the area consists of volcanic rocks and alluvial deposits.

4.2 Quality and importance

Important wetlands are formed in the N and E parts of the bay. Rare, threatened and/or uncommon bird species for both Greece and Europe pass-by or nest in the area.OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES IN 3.3 WITH MOTIVATION D:Mammals: Erinaceus concolor is protected by the Presidential Decree 67/81.Plants: Iris ochroleuca and Silene squamigera are protected by the Presidential Decree 67/81. The area is an important foraging area for Yelkouan Shearwaters , primarily during the non-breeding season. Congregations of up to 800 individuals are regularly observed feeding, mainly on shoals of sardine throughout the entire area of the gulfImportant wetlands are formed in the N and E parts of the bay. Rare, threatened and/or uncommon bird species for both Greece and Europe pass-by or nest in the area.
