The IBA is situated in the north of North Banat region, along the border with Romania and some 30km from the border with Hungary, within the municipality of Kikinda, Senta, Coka and Kanjiza municipalities. It is composed of four separate entities: Jaros-Jazovo-Valjerka, Kocovat, Crni rit and Siget. The IBA holds the largest complexes of steppe, salt marsh and marshland habitats in Serbia and almost completely free of human infrastructure, making it a uniquely preserved typical Pannonian landscape. The fishpond Jazovo (400 ha) is also included in this area.
