Proposals and management plans in Lithuania

The project proposed three improvements of the Natura 2000 sites in Lithuania: modification of the boundaries of two sites and designation of a new SPA.

1. Modification of the pSCI Palanga seaside (seacoast) (Palagos priekrantė); code - LTPAL0001. Project proposed to reduce a little bit the area of the current pSCI, covering the most important sites of the reefs only. The proposal is presented in the management plan of the site "Marine waters along the continental part of Lithuania".

2. Modification of the pSCI Curonian Spit (Kuršių nerija); code - LTNER0005. The project experts proposed enlargement of the former Curonian Spit pSCI boundaries covering a part of the marine waters of the Curonian Spit National Park, which is of crucial importance for the spawning Twaite shad (Alosa fallax).

3. Designation of a new SPA. Project experts proposed designation of a new marine SPA for the protection of the Velvet Scoter (Melanitta fusca), Razorbill (Alca torda) and Little Gull (Larus minutus). The proposed site is located in the coastal zone, to the west from the western border of the Curonian Spit SPA (map of SPA designation proposal, in Lithuanian).


Two management plans were elaborated for two sites in Lithuania:

1. "Marine waters along the continental part of Lithuania" (in Lithuanian), Summary (in English)
2. "Marine waters along Curonian Spit" (in Lithuanian), Summary (in English)
