Sea stars, Sampling & Sun

by Maria Casso

Yesterday we went to Sant Feliu de Guíxols, a locality situated on the Costa Brava. We sampled some sea stars by scuba diving, from surface to 20m depth.

We were very lucky because the day was sunny and the sea was oddly calm. It is a beautiful spot, but usually, at this time of year is very difficult to find such good weather conditions. Moreover, the water was warmer than we expected (18ºC at 12m and 16ºC at 20m depth).
