Expected results

The expected results related with conservation actions are:

+15 population spots

In areas of Natura 2000 network that are still occupied by elongated the Naiad Unio Elongatulus, consolidation of 8 populations (minimum) and at least 15 new recovery population spots that reinforce target population in each basin. 

Increase production of juvenile White-clawed Crayfish (Austropotamobius pallipes) in captive breeding center: 500% (minimum).


Reduction of the current rate of disappearance of crayfish populations of White-clawed Crayfish (Austropotamobius pallipes) in the area and recovery of 15 new population spots (minimum) to reinforce different population structures in each basin. 

+15 population spots

Getting a monitoring procedure against afanomicosi disease in the area for the protection of populations of White-clawed Crayfish (Austropotamobius pallipes).


Recovery of a population of European Pond Turtle (Emys orbicularis) in the Ter River, currently near extinction. 

Increase production of juvenile European Pond Turtle (Emys orbicularis) in central breeding: 100% (minimum). 

+12 population spots

12 new local recovery spots for Mediterranean Barbel (Barbus meridionalis) in sections currently unoccupied by the species. 

Increase surface occupancy of Vertigo moulinsiana and Vertigo angustior in the area of Banyoles, 10% and 25% (minimum), respectively.

+10% +25

Improve populations of Mediterranean Turtles (Mauremys leprosa), Marbled Newt (Triturus marmoratus), Common Midwife Toad (Alytes obstetricans), Western Spadefoot Toad (Pelobates cultripes), Natterjack Toad (Bufo calamita) and Tree Frog (Hyla meridionalis) in the lower course of the river Ter areas creating new temporary marshes (2 large sections, at least 12 small lagoons).

Eradicate Striped Crawfish (Orconectes limosus) in the performance area and the region. 

Avoid penetration of the zebra mussel in Lake Banyoles and the area.

Exotic Turtles -60%

Decrease density of exotic turtles: 60% (minimum) in wetlands of the River Ter and Banyoles Lake.

Exotic Fishes -25%

Reduction in the density of adult exotic fish-eating fishes in Banyoles Lake: 25% (minimum).
