Waters southeast of Fejø & Femø islands. 02/09/77; Region Sjælland; 41,826 ha; 54°54'N 011°30'E. Natura 2000 (SPA, SAC); Wildlife Reserves. A shallow coastal area of open water with reefs, sand banks, mudflats, uninhabited islets, saltmarshes, reedbeds, and islands supporting cultivated land and scattered habitation. Mainland coastal areas support deciduous woodland. The site is an internationally breeding, staging and wintering important area for of waterbirds, including Mute Swan (Cygnus olor), Whooper Swan (Cygnus cygnus) and Little Tern (Sterna albiforms). Human activities include recreation and agriculture. There is heavy hunting pressure in the open sea areas; strict regulations within the two wildlife reserves contribute to sustainable practices, however. The main factors affecting the sites ecological character are eutrophication of marine waters. A management plan was developed in 2011 which set site-specific nature goals and priorities. Parallel to this initiative, River Basin Management Plans have also been developed in order to improve water quality and the ecological status of wetland catchments and coastal areas. Ramsar site no. 160. Most recent RIS information: 2012.
