Lake Bardawil. 09/09/88; 59,500 ha; 31°05'N 033°05'E. Added to the Montreux Record, 4 July 1990. Protected Area. Two interconnected hypersaline lagoons consisting of islands and peninsulas. The site provides important spawning area for fish, supports commercially important fish populations, and is an important wintering and staging area for about 500,000 birds. Considerable ecological changes have occurred due to the extension of salt extraction and the constant formation of sand bars (siltation), which close the channels connecting the lagoons with the sea. Subject of a Ramsar Advisory Mission in 1991. Ramsar site no. 407. Most recent RIS information: 1994.
