The biotopes LGS.AEur, LGS.AP, LGS.AP.P and LGS.AP.Pon are important in supporting predator communities of mobile macrofauna, over-wintering and migrating wading birds and juvenile fish. The loss of these biotopes and the fauna they support would have implications at local, regional and international scales (Elliott et al., 1998).
