During his short visit to the Dive Centers Squatina on the island Krk in Croatia JBL’s expedition leader Heiko Blessin was amazed by the diversity of the marine fauna: “The Mediterranean Sea is not a tropical ocean, of course. But the animal diversity and the colours could easily compete with a coral reef. Particularly noteworthy are the numerous starfish species on the south coast of Baska. I’ve never seen so many feather stars (Crinoids) in the Mediterranean.
Perhaps we’ll organise a workshop in Croatia. But we’ll strongly recommend a dry diving suit for the April water temperature of 11 °C at a depth of 35 m."
