RED LIST Biotope Expert Team
Baltic bottoms in the photic zone with at least 90 %
coverage of rock, boulders or stones of more than 63 mm in diameter. Macroscopic
vegetation or sessile macroscopic epifauna is present but none of them cover
more than 10 % of the seabed.
Salinity range: All; Exposure range: all, more common in
exposed areas; Depth range: photic zone – usually in the most shallow part.
Mapping should take place during
the months when the vegetation is fully developed.
