Mapping of marine habitat in Gyaros

The mapping of marine habitat has started by the Department of Marine Geology and Physical Oceanography of the University of Patras. The marine area of Gyaros hosts seagrass Posidonia meadows and coralligenous reefs, the so called marine nurseries. The traditional kaiki St. George, equipped with all the necessary machinery, with a decompression chamber on board and the team of the University of Patras together with their collaborators, will sail around the island in order to collect all the necessary data. The WWF Greece filed team of CYCLADES LIFE will provide all the necessary support to the team.
