Biocoenosis of the Mediterranean euryhaline and/or eurythermal lagoon on rock

Description (English)

This biocoenosis gathers the infralittoral rock assemblages of the euryhaline and/or eurythermal lagoon. The term lagoon thus covers very diverse situations linked to the variability of salt water and fresh water additions, both on the tidal sea coasts and in the Mediterranean. Some lagoons are natural, lying in littoral depressions, periodically fed by the sea, and others are former marshes that have been developed by man over very long periods (salterns, euryhaline fish reservoirs, fish-farming basins
