Anzali Lagoon

Located in the northern Gilan Province, the present surface area of Anzali Mordab (lagoon) is estimated at less than 35 km². Apart from being important for finfish and crayfish, Anzali lagoon is also an important bird nesting and wintering habitat, and is an internationally listed protected wetland because of its importance for migratory birds. The situation, as at present, demands clarification of the lagoon’s importance for fish and wildlife, and urgently requires putting forward proposals for the best management measures, which would make possible the optimal use of the lagoon for fish, crayfish and wildlife, while maintaining it as a unique habitat decorated with beautiful Lotus flowers.
