Search for great vacation spots

The Sea of Japan is probably the most interesting sea for scientific research of underwater depths by scientists-biologists and simply lovers of underwater sports, who are frequent guests of these marine expanses. The underwater world of the sea and its surrounding nature is distinguished by peculiar beauty. The coast of the Sea of Japan is strewn with a large number of rocky islands of various sizes, some of which are not inhabited so far. Here is the largest reserve in the world. The reserve islands break off into the sea by rocky shores with nearby standing separate rocks - kekurs. Rocks go to the sea vertically down to a depth of 30 meters.

The underwater fauna of the Sea of Japan is very diverse: a huge number of gray and black sea urchins, red - blue starfish, hermit crabs, crabs and sea scallop, flounder, and one of the most famous sea creatures - an octopus, reaching incredible sizes.

The sandy bottom of the Sea of Japan was chosen by flounder, in the Gulf of Peter the Great there are 16 species of this fish. In the crevices of the cliffs inhabited by sea bass. Dark Japanese and golden three-lane, the fish is equipped with powerful prickly fins and rays. Each beam has grooves through which a poisonous substance flows into the wound of an enemy. This type of fish is very popular with underwater hunters, the perch is very tasty fish.

In the same waters are found gobies. In the bays there is a dog fish with a funny muzzle, thick lips and warts. The doggy fish often attacks the octopus, bites off the negate tentacles, and in some cases kicks him out of the shelter. Giant Octopus or Doflaine Octopus is the largest octopus that rightfully adorns the underwater world of the Sea of Japan. The amazing creation of nature is learnable, the octopus has conditioned reflexes. Habitat - the gap between the boulders, from which it is difficult to lure or get. The main food, bivalve mollusks, which are brought "home", are opened and devoured, and the shells are thrown out;
