An Inventory of UK estuaries. Volume 7: Northern Ireland 1996


The 'inventory of UK estuaries' series is a seven-volume series which describes the estuaries of the UK, providing information on their size, location, wildlife, national importance and conservation status, using graphs, tables, text and maps.

Volume 7 covers the eight major estuaries that lie wholly, or partly, within Northern Ireland. The estuaries of Lough Foyle and Carlingford Lough straddle the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. As estuaries function as integral ecological units, the areas of Lough Foyle and Carlingford Lough that do not fall within the administrative and political boundaries of Northern Ireland are included, to provide a complete picture. Where total figures for these estuaries have been quoted in the text, these are based on the estuary as a whole and not just that within Northern Ireland. It is not intended to imply that the whole of these estuaries are within the administrative or political jurisdiction of Northern Ireland.

Please note this volume has been produced from a scan of an original document, and is therefore a large file size. There may also be fluctuations in quality.
