Like in most locations of the Eastern Mediterranean, the underwater landscape is characterised by an impoverished fauna, and the almost total absence of larger fish, to to intensive fishing pressure including spearfishing anf dynamite fishing. While highly strcutured due to the geology, fauna and flora are poorly developed.
