Characteristics A separate window opensReferences

These waters include the Fujimae tidal mud flats located at the river mouth where the three rivers of the Shonai, Shinkawa, and Nikko come together in the inner reaches of Ise Bay. Numerous species of birds, in large populations, visit the Fujimae tidal mud flats during the spring and fall migrations and winter there, where at least 1% of the minimum estimated population of black-bellied plover and dunlin and at least 0.25% of the minimum estimated population of grey-headed lapwing, Kentish plover, lesser sand plover, bar-tailed godwit, Numenius phaeopus, Eurasian curlew, spotted redshank, greenshank, Terek sandpiper, grey-tailed tattler, ruddy turnstone, and red-necked stint have been recorded. Also recorded here are Far Eastern curlew, common redshank, Anatidae, and heron. Japanese mud shrimp, Stenothyra edogawaensis and others live here as well (Ministry of the Environment, 2001). These waters also include the mouths of the Kiso and Ibi rivers.
