Indian ocean fauna Coral Strand Hotel
Seychelles is washed by the Indian Ocean the
third largest of the worlds five oceans. It
offers great opportunities for water sports in
Seychelles. Diving and snorkelling are the most
popular among them thanks to the rich and
colourful fauna of the Indian Ocean.
2
The flora and fauna of the Indian Ocean is quite
rich. In the shallow waters of the tropical zone,
corals grow, which create islands with red and
green algae. Among the coral islands, the
Maldives are the most famous. Among these strong
coral structures, there are many species of
invertebrates, such as crabs, sea urchins,
sponges, and coral fish. Huge areas of dense
thickets of brown algae are common here. Most of
the planktonic algae are found in the open ocean,
while the Arabian Sea is characterized by
blue-green algae, which constantly cause water to
bloom.

In the waters of the Indian Ocean, among the
incredibly beautiful coral structures, a huge
number of brightly colored fish, sponges,
mollusks, crustaceans, crabs, worms, starfish,
hedgehogs, turtles, luminous anchovies, and
sailing fish live.
4
There are also dangerous species for humans
octopuses, jellyfish, poisonous sea snakes and
sharks. A large amount of plankton is the main
food for large fish such as sharks and tuna.
5
In the mangroves thickets there is a needle
jumper - a fish that is able to stay on land for
a long time, thanks to the special structure of
the body. Sardinella, mullet, horse mackerel, and
sea catfish are found in coastal waters. In the
southern part live white fish.
6
In the tropical zones you can find rare and
unusual representatives of the genus sirens -
dugongs, and, of course, dolphins and whales.
7
Among birds, frigates and albatrosses are most
common. Endemic species include the paradise
flycatcher and the cowgirl partridge.
8
You can get acquainted with the underwater halo
of the Indian Ocean closer by diving or
snorkeling. In Seychelles, the most favorable
environment for this is in St. Anne's Marine Park.
