Natura Regions - from Kanoni to Messoghi

gr2230005 This region is in the eastern part of Corfu and includes the shores from    Kanoni to Messoghi . At Kanoni region, the water is shallow. The substratum is sandstone. Amid the upper rocks, on a sandy substratum, develops the marine phanerogam Cymodocea nodosa . The meadows of Posidonia oceanica extend at depths less than 1,5 m south of the village Messoghi . Here, the bottom of the sea is both rocky and sandy, with pebbles and rocks of all sizes. Phanerophyceae are predominant, as well as phytocenoses Cystoseiretum crinitae .


The existence of the marine phanerogam Posidonia oceanica is of a great ecological value. The meadows formed by this species are the most important marine ecosystems in the Mediterranean, as they controbute largely to the primary production. They are also a suitable place for the deposition of the eggs of the fish, and the ideal habitat for many animal and plant species. Those meadows are developed in their most dense form on the side of Messoghi. This marine region is characterized by a huge biodiversity in flaura and fauna.
