Today I felt curious about the marine life of the Mediterranean Sea (地中海 ちちゅうかい ). Found some interesting articles and databases.
Sadly, several of these amazing marine species are threatened or endangered today.

This guy has it figured out. Just wandering around humming all his favorite tunes, eating random insects, etc.
Seriously, this Aquarium is creating a LOT of video content. Much more than I realized. They even have live feeds of some of the tank setups!
(thought it seems it’s night over there, if you find the earlier parts of the feed, there’s lots to watch. ^>^ )
Time for more aquatic creatures pictures! ^>^ This time, I’ve been looking up Japanese fishies!

Tbh, I’m not a big fan of the “Free Documentary” channel on YT since the narration tend to be lackluster (just not well researched and lacking in depth of knowledge overall).
That being said, it does allow for more documentary content on the web, and sometimes with a different subject matter than the big documentaries. This is such a case.
This is first time I’m seeing a documentary about Skagerrak, the sea between Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
I think this was an interesting documentary all in all. Never new of this island’s existence.
