A shallow saline fjord area with shoals and islands, coastal saltmarsh and agricultural land.
The site was very important for wintering ducks (in total more than 20,000 individuals, with eight species fulfilling IBA criteria). However, numbers declined sharply during the 1980s, presumably because of deteriorating water quality, and by 1993 insufficient numbers were present to fulfil the criteria. Recurvirostra avosetta, listed on Annex I of the EC Birds Directive, breeds at the site.
