06 Aug Epinephelus marginatus with the PCC
Ecocean team based in Marseille has the pleasure to show you his Epinephelus marginatus post-larvae that has been captured using a CARE net along with 9 fellow groupers! Grouper is an emblematic species of the Mediterranean sea. It got almost extinct due to overfishing and is now under strict protection. This very good capture is an encouraging sign of the recovering of the species!
These ten Groupers will be raised with great care in the Wetlab for a restocking planified in September/October 2015.
