Gorgonian and starfish at Cabo de Palos

This green algae is the “bad guy”. Looks pretty, but it is an invasive species in the Mediterranean that is taking over the Posidonia. Don’t touch it, because it can spread easily and invade other areas…. His name is Caulerpa.

This jellyfish are more and more common due to overfishing of their predators

In Cabo de Palos you can find many “white gorgonians” (Eunicella singularis)

He is Ramon, helping me to do some underwater work!
Counting and collecting limpets… Can you see them?
