About this book

Language: French

The sites of Khnifiss and M'diq, Morocco, were studied in a multidisciplinary approach between June 1997 and March 2003. In the south Atlantic, the lagoon of Khnifiss is a mesotidal site managed mainly by the tides. The hydrodynamic study showed the alternating two-way nature of the water circulation inside the lagoon. Zonation was established according to the trophic capacity and hydrological parameters, and shows that the lagoon of Khnifiss is conducive to shellfish farming; Nevertheless, the installation of any aquaculture project in this Ramsar-listed lagoon must take into account its ecological balance. The Bay of M'diq opens into Mediterranean offshore waters, with a strong exchange with the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the characteristics of a Mediterranean climate (rainfall, storm, wind ...), which are all key factors in its mode of operation and the successful animal rearing in this site. The variability of hydrological parameters and the low richness of this area in nutrients and chlorophyll-a reflects the trophic status of this site.

Summary in French:
Les sites de Khnifiss et de M’diq ont été étudiés dans une approche pluridisciplinaire entre juin 1997 et mars 2003. En atlantique sud, la lagune de khnifiss est un site mesotidal gérée essentiellement par la marée. L’étude hydrodynamique a montré le caractère alternatif et bidirectionnel de la circulation des eaux à l’intérieur de cette lagune. La zonation établie en fonction de la capacité trophique et les paramètres hydrologiques montre que la lagune de Khnifiss est propice à la conchyliculture; Néanmoins, l’installation de tout projet aquacole dans cette lagune classé site Ramsar, doit tenir compte de son équilibre écologique. La baie de M’diq, s’ouvre sur les eaux méditerranéennes du large, les forts échanges avec l’océan atlantique au Nord et la particularité du climat méditerranéen (pluviométrie, tempête, vents…) sont autant de facteurs déterminants dans son mode de fonctionnement et la réussite d’un élevage dans le site. La variabilité des paramètres hydrologiques et la faible richesse du milieu en nutriments et en chlorophylle-a reflètent l’état trophique de ce site.
