The offshore island Toro (Calvià, Mallorca) as the waters between it, is Clot des Moro and Cala Refeubetx have a high ecological value and fishing by habitat diversity of benthic and fish that can find, done that showed the study conducted by the “Society d’Historia Natural de les Balears” in 1994.

The meadows of Posidonia oceanica seagrass cover large areas and its rocky seabed many species of fish congregate forward commercial, some of them with reproductive purposes. Both seagrass beds as many species of fish in these waters deserve adequate protection.

The large bathymetric gradient of this area and its location make it an exceptional place to find migratory pelagic species. Hopefully his statement as a reservation make those populations sedentary species (grouper, sea bass, etc.), negatively affected by recreational fishing, recover over time.
