Sustainable management of a coastal lagoonal system (Ria Formosa, Portugal): an ecological model for extensive aquaculture



Sustainable management of a coastal lagoonal system (Ria Formosa, Portugal): an ecological model for extensive aquaculture



International Journal of Salt Lake Research, 62: 145-173



The Ria Formosa lies in southern Portugal, extending for about 55 km. It is a true barrier island system, comprising mainland, backbarrier lagoons, inlet deltas, barrier islands, barrier platforms and shoreface. Of the Ria Formosa system, which covers a total area of 163 km2, 20 km2 are occupied by salinas and aquaculture ponds. The main water reservoir of thesalinas and the extensive aquaculture ponds behave like small lagoons where there are one or more openings to a tidal channel. These small lagoons have the advantage of being easy to study and to model.
