Fishes of the Red Sea: a catalog of titles

A large number of countries washed by warm seas have exotic species in our area. Especially replete with unusual creatures and bright fish of the Red Sea.

The country has affordable prices for the average tourist with average earnings, so many go there to not only relax under palm trees, but also dive with a mask deep into the Red Sea – marine inhabitants in these parts are so unusual that there is a great desire on them and to see for yourself and show people.

The fish of the Red Sea are also completely harmless and very dangerous.

The Red Sea is especially replete with unusual creatures and bright fish

The Red Sea divides Eurasia and Africa, going deep into the continent. The sea is connected to the Indian Ocean by the Strait of Bab El Mabdeb, and to the Mediterranean Sea thanks to the artificially created Suez Canal.

The climate in these parts is very hot and dry., so, the evaporation of water here is intense. Due to the climatic conditions, the salt concentration here exceeds all permissible norms, yielding only Dead Sea for this indicator, where almost no one lives.

In the Red Sea, unlike the Dead Sea, the underwater world is rich in the diversity of life: more than half of the inhabitants of the Indian Ocean live here. Many species have adapted to the high level of salt, even new representatives of the fauna have appeared, who live only in the Red Sea.
