Pleasant visit onboard

BY: Oceana Web



Today Ursula and Dominique Eichenberger from Drittes Foundation paid us the most pleasant visit, which came along with two interesting dives. The first survey was carried out in a not very deep area where we had previously found rhodoliths, but this time what we found was mud withemerging rocks. We could also see crinoid aggregations, sea pens and corals such as Dendrophyllia ramea, scorpionfish, lobsters and even a small-spotted catshark (Scyliorhinus canicula). On the second survey, conducted at greater depths and in a different area, we were lucky to find concentrations of corals, congers, silver roughies, and large aggregations of euphausid shrimps. Our day got to its end being greeted by a pod of dolphins, which we hadn´t seen for quite a long time now.
