Gochang Getbol is a typical open-embayed type tidal flat (macrotidal range about 7.2m) and has developed in both the inner and outer sides of Gomsoman Bay.
With the seasonal changes in dynamics of tide and wave, Gochang Getbol shows distinctive patterns of surface sediment distribution. This provides a unique habitat distribution pattern for living organisms.

Gochang Getbol hosts as many as 18 waterbird species on the IUCN Red List. Spoonbilled sandpipers, a critically endangered species (CR), are observed in this area. A total of 255 species of macrobenthos is also present in the property. Importatly, oriental storks (EN) appear only in Gochang Getbol among the serial nominated sites for feeding on Japanese mud crabs and gobies in fall to get through winter. Gochang Getbol is a habitat for tiger crabs, an endemic species to the Yellow Swa, and is reported to be a monospecific genus worldwide.
