Coral Reef Adventure - 15.-29.9.2011 - from participant Johanna Fischer

We have two exciting weeks of marine biology behind us. During the first dives we were really amazed by the fish diversity and their beautiful colours. Before and after the dives we discussed with Christian topics such as fish ID, coral ID, seagrass meadows, and invertebrates, as well as fish behaviour. Thus, after a few days we were able to determine many fish and coral species. During our observational dives we examined the blue streak cleaner wrasse and clownfish (“Nemos”) at the local reef a bit closer and we did some observations on their strong territorial behaviour towards us uninvited guests and toward other fish species. Encounters with green sea turtles, small rays, e.g. blue spotted sting ray, octopus and brightly coloured jellyfish were some highlights.

Another highlight was the fluorescence night dive: equipped with blue light torches and filters on the mask we made our way to admire fluorescent organisms. And we could actually see the green fluorescent protein in the star gazers, sepia or sand roses. After this course one thing for me is for sure: life in all its beauty had its origin in the sea!
