Mo.Na Project - Second mission of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research in Albania

Nov 13, 2020   Albania

Another successful fieldtrip has been implemented by the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research within the Mo.Na framework, this time in the Butrint National Park and the adjacent coastal seas of South Albania.

Activities took place in September 25-30th and were locally supported by the Spiranca Dive Centre. Important Mediterranean Marine Habitat Types were detected, among which extensive Posidonia seagrass beds and Reefs covered by rich coralligenous assemblages, while singular biogenic reefs and lush Cymodocea seagrass beds have been detected within the unique lagoonal environment of Butrint, often framing age-long city walls and imposing monuments.
