The Algerian Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries commits to prepare a study in order to establish a marine protected area in Cape Lindles in the province of Oran (north west of Algeria).

The marine environment of Cap Lindles, with its coastal area of approximately 18 Kilometers, offers an outstanding marine biodiversity and represents a vital zone for key species. Some of these species are threatened (Annex II of the Barcelona Convention, red list of the International Union for Conservation of Nature), for example cystoseira, giant patella (patella ferruginae), mother of pearl pina rudis, peltodoris nobilis, brown grouper (epinephelus marginatus)...
