This section of our site is dedicated to the Mediterranean Sea. A closed
sea which is polluted, with a high specific gravity, temperate water, home
of the first European Civilizations. The Sea which witnessed the Rise and
Fall of the Greek Golden civilization and well as that of the Roman
Empire. The Sea traveled more than any other body of water in human
history by the Phoenicians, the Cretans, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the
Romans, the Byzantines and the Crusaders. It is commonly believed that
species from temperate waters have less color than the ones from tropical
waters. This may be so (you will be the judge of that) but still
Mediterranean is full of very interesting species. This section will be
loaded with high quality pictures which may take a while to download.
Please be patient - we feel that the pictures will reward you for that. If
