Ismaninger Speichersee & Fischteichen. 26/02/76; Bayern; 955 ha; 48°13'N 011°41'E. Nature Reserve. A former peatbog designed for the biological treatment of waste water from Munich. The site consists of an artificial reservoir formed by the damming of the Isar River and 30 adjacent fishponds used for carp breeding and is surrounded by agricultural land. It supports breeding birds and is internationally important for wintering and staging waterbirds. The banks of the reservoir are mostly devoid of vegetation, although part of the southern shoreline is composed of a succession from reedbeds to woodland. Human activities include seasonal hunting and fishing. Ramsar site no. 92. Most recent RIS information: 1992.
