Black-striped pipefish is Syngnathus abaster and is an amazing snake like fish, the size of a little finger and 10-15 cm long. I was lucky to spot this one and succeeded in taking several shots. Sorry, some are not very sharp but I felt it was interesting to show this rather unusual fish.
I am unable to give the scientific name of these small fishes but what I know is that they would have made an excellent dish once fried!
Fried fishes are called Γαρσοσ in Greek. When they are whole small fishes, the name is μαριδα but these very small one would be named Αφβειυα.
As well as starfishes, urchins are Echinoderms with a radial symmetry. They feed mostly on algae but eat also mussels. The ones I photographed here are amidst mussels, so it is very likely that they were looking for a prey!
This little guy is the common goby (Pomatoschistus microps) and was half hidden in a crevice of the rock (second photo). I waited a few minutes and he came completely out, allowing me to make the first photo. It is very small, 4-5 cm long. You must enlarge the photos to see it!
Starfish is not actually a fish at all, but an Echinoderm with a radial symmetry. Starfishes have five “arms” which draw a kind of star, hence the name. They are ferocious animals that live on oysters, mussels and other shelled animals. They do the same than man: they eat them alive!
Jellyfish are highly stinging when you touch them inadvertently. When stranded on the beach, they look like a disgusting mass of jelly. However, if you succeed in looking closely at one of them while it is swimming, they are very delicate animals that wave gently and make a beautiful design!
