Other Site Characteristics

Sörsundet is one of two outflows from the lake Hamrångefjärden. It is almost like a narrow creek protected by a few small islets at the opening. At normal water level Bondsundet is a lake separated from the Baltic by Sörsundet, but at extreme high water the sea reaches even this high and salty sea water can even reach Bondsundet. At these occasions even the surrounding mires and forest is influenced by sea water.

4.2 Quality and importance

Sörsundet is an extremely good example of the gradient from fresh water to brackish water. There are probably very few if any like this one along the northern coast of Sweden. Sörsundet is part of a larger area of National interest to environmental care.
