Yagorlytska Bay. 23/11/95; Khersonska, Mykolaivska Oblasts; 34,000 ha; 46°24'N 031°53'E. Added to the Montreux Record, 16 June 1993, removed from the Record, 29/08/03. Biosphere Reserve; Ornithological Refuge, Protected Area. A saltwater lagoon separated from the sea by a long sandy spit, the site includes numerous interconnected lakes and temporary waterbodies. Vegetation consists of brackish and saltwater associations made up of emergent and submergent species and marsh communities. The site supports internationally important numbers of several species of nesting, molting, and wintering waterbirds. Some of these species, the duck Aythya nyroca and the goose Branta ruficollis, are globally threatened. Numerous nationally rare fish species occur at the site. Human activities include fishing, recreation, and hunting. There is disturbance from commercial fishing and pollution by industrial and agricultural waste water; these impacts led to listing on the Montreux Record in 1993. The site was removed from the Montreux Record in 2003. Ramsar site no. 116. Most recent RIS information: 1998.
