THE BLENNY WORKSHOP
The Mediterranean is a so-called oligotrophic sea halfway between temperate and subtropical areas. For several reasons in short, it means its overall biological wealth is not comparable to that of the coral seas, or that of nutrient rich, temperate to cold marine areas. Not at least to the naked eye. At first sight, nothing worthy of attention to the mainstream diving related audiences.
However, there is a fish assemblage that brings together along the Mare Nostrum in a way that contends and wins both in biological and visual values like no other in the world. They are not big fish, nor swimming in spectacular huge shoals, nor comes to you when artificially fed. They are indeed out of sight to the ordinary eye.
During spring, and the first half of the summer, blennies and allies bloom into a spectacular life performance over the shallow rocky bottoms in the Mediterranean. Breeding season has just started, and more than 30 species of small, smart, and colourful fish start their astonishing parade.
The whole event it happens only once a year during a few months, and it offers a unique opportunity to understand how life performs at the sea, and inherently, an endless source of impressive behaviour imagery to those marine naturalists and photographers looking for further experiences beyond the crowded tracks.
After nearly 25 years studying and portraying these tiny goblins, I think it´s time to share all that knowledge gathered through passion and dedication.
This season, I am offering two workshops about this fascinating event in the southeastern coast of Spain, one of the best spots in the whole Mediterranean sea in terms of species diversity and easy access, to enjoy such a natural show.
