Nissum Bredning with Harboøre and Agger Tange. 02/09/77; Regions Midtjylland and Nordjylland; 12,786 ha; 056°38'N 008°15'E.Natura 2000 (SCA, SPA); Nature Conservation Areas, Wildlife Reserve. A shallow fjord area, open water, saltmarsh, sand flats, meadows, agricultural land, brackish lagoons and reedbeds, it is an internationally important area for breeding, wintering and staging various species of waterbirds such as Baltic Dunlin (Calidris alpina schinzii) and Ruff (Philomachus pugnax). Moreover, the site supports more than 1% of the individuals of the goose species Anser brachyrhynchus, Anser anser, and Branta bernicla hrota. A breeding colony of the seal Phoca vitulina is also supported. Public access is regulated during breeding season of waterbirds. Declining grazing has resulted in marsh and meadow degradation, and invasive species such as mink and raccoon dog are new threats in Agger Tange. In 2011 management plans were issued by the Ministry of the Environment setting up specific nature goals and priorities. A monitoring programme (NOVANA) has been implemented since 2003 to assess water quality. Ramsar site no. 144. Most recent RIS information: 2012.
