During our sailing trips in Barcelona, it is nice to get some information on sea life in the Mediterranean. We like to know more about that fabulous life under us when we sail. There is so much to learn in the articles we place on this website we talk mainly about the animals in the Mediterranean Sea.
Did you know that the deepest point in the Mediterranean sea 4,400 m deep, and is called the Rhodes Deep?
We were surprised to learn that some whales are living close to Barcelona only 12 miles. However, we have not spotted whales in front of the Barcelona coastline. The smallest animal in the Mediterranean sea is the zooplankton.
The most seen large animals in the Mediterranean sea are the dolphins! We used to see a lot of short-beaked common dolphins but because of plastic pollution and overfishing, the dolphins decided to relocate to better more fertile grounds.
This section is an ongoing study and we will add more and more detailed information on marine life and marine health over the years.
