“I’m a plant, not a kind of seaweed as I have roots, stems, and leaves as well as flowrs and fruit (“sea olives”). I make some of the largest most beautiful underwater meadows – which are good for all of us and full of life!
Did you know the largest meadow is at l’Ametlla de Mar?
A safe place: The perfect hiding place for over 400 diferent aquatic species. This plant can only be found in the Mediterranean!
Its life-cycle: In the autumn the foliage accumulated on the shore protects the shoreline from the effects of storms. This is a natural process!
Some years the meadows may produce flowers and fruit.
Benefits: This plant generates oxygen and is an indicator of how clean the water is.
A safe place: The perfect hiding place for over 400 different aquatic species.
