Lake Gaschet

Other bodies of water - Port-Louis

Lake Gaschet is the largest freshwater lake in Guadeloupe and serves as a haven for a diverse range of bird species. Created in the early 1990s as a reservoir for farming purposes, it extends over some 100 hectares and is 4 km. long at its longest point. It has been declared an Area of Ornithological Interest and is home to many aquatic species, including the Ruddy Duck, Crested Grebe and Moorhen. In 2000, the site was recognized as a ZNIEFF (Area of Natural Interest in terms of Ecology, Fauna and Flora) and protected with fences. The dam that created the lake is around 100 m. long and lies to the southwest of the lake. A hydroelectric plant has also been installed there and produces a maximum output of 250 KW, with net available power of 70 KW.
