The striped red mullet is a small reddish fish. It can be found in the northeast Atlantic and the Mediterranean, where it dwells at the bottom of the sea, up to 100 meters deep. This species forms shoals and feeds on crustaceans, small molluscs and fish. It reproduces from late winter to early summer. Juvenile striped red mullets live closer to the surface, only moving to deeper waters once they’ve matured into adulthood. Their two chin barbels contain chemosensory organs and are used to probe the sand for food.

Cockles are very common and up to 10,000 animals per square meter can be found. Because of its high tolerance to low salinity environments, it is also frequently found in estuaries.

Fish and Shellfish - Leaf Barnecle

The leaf barnacle occurs on rocky coasts in the intertidal zone, although it can also be found on deeper areas. It tends to occur in closely associated groups, forming clumps tightly attached to the rocks. This is their defence against stormy seas. Interestingly, the leaf barnacle develops faster where the sea is wilder. These crustaceans are resilient heroes, permanently exposed to the pounding of the waves at the foot of the cliffs. However, as they have little mobility, they are sometimes swept away by ocean currents.
