Marine Life In Malta, Gozo & Comino
The warm Mediterranean waters around Malta provide a great variety of fauna, flora and fish. The sea beds are gardens of seagrass where wrasse hide, and a fanworm’s tentacles are like delicate petals on a flower as they gently sway to scoop up plankton. Orange and red starfish slowly traverse the rocks, and an octopus squirts ink from cracks. During the summer months seahorses can be found, and lucky divers may catch a glimpse of their ‘courtship dance’ as they hold tails and waltz on the current’s ebb. Groupers shelter in crevices, moray eels hide in holes, and red mullet dig for food in the sand with their whiskers. John Dory rise from the deep blue to the warmer waters during the winter – long spines decorate their dorsal fin like a centurion’s helmet.
