Artisanal Salina – Unique Wetland Habitats Worth Preserving

Artisanal salina is wetlands of particular interest in terms of biodiversity, but also as a cultural landscape and industrial heritage. Composed of a series of successive ponds with decreasing depths, delimited and protected by dykes, which are subject to water regulation and evaporation for salt production, they display a range of brackish/ marine to hyper-saline conditions, characterized by particular species assemblages. Generally embedded in estuaries and salt marshes, considered valuable wetland ecosystems especially important as breeding and feeding grounds for water birds and as hatcheries for many fish species, salina ponds and dykes allow furthermore for different niches and are, particularly important as feeding grounds for birds.
