In General, large catfish and Remora are most inclined to free life, often travel without assistance. Many small catfish live almost hopeless Remora, sucker, mouth in whales, sharks, manta rays, and again between the gills of sharks Macedonia and other large fish.
Columbus in 1494 and set anchor off the coast of Cuba, seen catfish hunt with the hangers on the turtles. In our days this hunt with “hunting fish” described by many researchers. Catfish adhesion to the custom of the fishermen of Torre owl Strait, South China, Venezuela, Cuba, Mozambique and Zanzibar. Catch any fish, even sharks, but mainly sea turtles. And the aborigines of Australia hunted with clingy catfish and dugongs.
Start with the fact that they catch in the sea catfish Remora. Then he pierce a hole in the tail, pass through a long thin rope and tightly tie it around the tail. The second, shorter, the twine is passed through the mouth and gills of catfish Remora. So two “moorings” and towed catfish Remora at the side of the Shuttle. Continue reading
A cruise in the Mediterranean sea is very popular with tourists. This is an opportunity to visit several countries in one vacation. Here are some interesting facts about the Mediterranean sea:
The very name of this inland sea comes from the Latin Mare Mediterranea — sea in the midst of the Earth. This term was coined by the ancient Greek writer Julius Solin.
Modern computer technology has helped scientists to calculate that the filling of the Mediterranean sea occurred due to the catastrophic floods that occurred 5.3 million years ago. It is noteworthy that it was filled for two years. The article describing this research, published in the journal Nature, New Scientist gave a brief retelling.
Tectonic activity of this region caused the formation of a wall in place of Gibraltar. She was blocking the ocean from the sea that turned into a lake. Previously thought that the isthmus had a very powerful waterfall, which was considerably higher than Niagara, he filled the sea for about 10 years. Continue reading
The greatest length of the Black sea from North to South — 580 km and a maximum depth of 2210 m, the average — 1240 m. the salinity of the water is approximately 18 ppm. The depth increases pretty quickly. Over a sloping beach near Evpatoria, Feodosia. On the South coast, in mountain areas, the depth increases more rapidly: a few meters from the shore you have to swim (or, in the alternative, to swim along the shore). Be careful, even at a short distance from the shore can be strong currents to deal with which is not prepared person is quite difficult. But mostly this does not apply to places of mass bathing (if not to swim too far). Waters of the Black sea, as a rule, not susceptible to freezing. The average sea temperature in winter ranges from +6 to +8 degrees, in summer — from +22 to +24 degrees (can warm up to 26 degrees in a particularly hot summer). However, it is worth noting that the Black sea could throw a “surprise”: one day deep cold currents cool the coastal waters up to 12 degrees, even Continue reading
