Corals and fish of the red sea

There are on our planet, the sea of extraordinary beauty, attracting millions of tourists from all over the world for its clear water, beautiful corals and diverse fishes. It comes to the Red sea. This is one of the most beautiful places of our planet.

Why do they call it? No exact answer. Someone thinks that it got its name due to algae that in some months, the sea change colour from azure blue to red. And some prefer a more interesting explanation. According to the Bible, Moses led the Jews from Egypt to Israel through the Red sea. When they approached the shore – the water parted and exposing the bottom. It consisted entirely of canyons, cliffs and hollows. The path was very rugged and a lot of Jews died, bleeding to death. That’s why it was called the Red sea.

The red sea is a Gulf of the Indian ocean. It is situated in the deep depression, formed millions of years ago between the Arabian Peninsula and Africa. An area of almost 500 thousand square kilometers, with more than two thirds of the sea is located in tropical zone. The average water depth from 500 m to 1 km in the middle part of the sea is crack, as if dissecting it into two parts. There is a depth of 2.5 to 3 km. makes it different from other seas of our planetat that the Red sea is not no river flows. The Suez canal in the Northern part of the sea – the work of human hands, it is rather narrow, so the natural circulation of water occurs only in the southern part of the sea through the Bab-El-Mandeb.

This natural isolation has led to the fact that in the Red sea the most clear water. Usually the rivers carry their waters in the sea sand, debris and dirty water. But in this sea water is so clear that you can easily see the incredible beauty and diversity of “underwater life” of the red sea.

The absence of influent rivers has also led to the fact that sea has the most salty water among all seas on our planet. The salt concentration here is that to drown is almost impossible. It is well suited for those who decided to learn to swim and likes to swim far away (fatigue less than in the other seas). Continue reading
