Panorama

Dojran Lake (Dojransko Ezero). 02/08/07; 2,696 ha; 41°13'N 022°45'E. Monument of Nature; Balkan Green Belt (EECONET); CORINE site. A shallow eutrophic lake with no natural outlets and its surrounding swamp and thermal spring, located in the southeast of the country and shared with Greece. The local community employs a unique and ancient fish hunting practice, with its own implements and traditions using birds and reed traps, first described by Herodotus in the 5th century B.C. and thought now to be practiced only here. The lake hosts several endemic species and subspecies of fish as well as 11 endemic invertebrates and many protected bird species. More than 100 individuals of Pelecanus crispus are supported every year in the period from November till March. A decreasing water level from over-abstraction is perceived as a potential threat. Ramsar site no. 1735. Most recent RIS information: 2008.
