The Semyachicksky estuary is counted as one of the most important wetlands as a key ornithological territory.

Located at the reserve's southern boundary, Semyachicksky estuary is a 780-hectare shallow body of water.

The reservoir's swampy shores are perfect for nesting birds. Up to 150 pairs of Kamchatkan (Aleut) tern nest here, along with hundreds of pairs of ducks, shorebirds, and other waterbirds. Up to 1200 waterfowl species winter at the Liman pool. Huge numbers of waterfowl can be noted during migration periods: during the spring, 10,000 birds are recording each day, and up to 15,000 are noted daily during the fall.
