Sun - source of life

Paramuricea clavata Coral; at 41 m, February, Islands of Kornati, Islet of Purara  In the struggle of elements, stones, waves, and winds, the Sun is an irrefutable participant, the great originator, and energy source. The Sun that spreads its rays over the entire surface, looses its breath in the sea. One of the reasons is the purity of the sea and the richness of the microscopic life. However, Croatia’s undersea world has a considerable transparency and visibility of more than 50 meters.

Croatia’s undersea world is neither warm, nor oceanically cold. In winter time temperature drops as low as 12°C, and in summer time, with the Sun burning, the surface temperature can go up to 26°C.
