The record-breaking seaweed is Italian: the world’s longest posidonia is found in the Egadi Islands

posidoniaItaly has a positive record this time, that of posidonia, the beneficial marine plant that allows the sea to oxygenate and protects the coast from erosion. The world’s largest Posidonia is found on the Egadi Islands in the Marine Protected Area where a leaf of the precious marine plant over two meters long was found. A true all-time record, normally the leaf length reaches 50 to 70 centimeters.

THE OTHER EGADIANS “ALGA-RECORDS”
Another record for the Egadi Islands is the Posidonia plantation that resides there. At 6,500 hectares, it is the largest in the entire Mediterranean. There is also a third record, thanks to the transparency of the water, posidonia, which needs light and the clearest water to develop, has taken root even beyond a depth of 50 meters. Experts were astonished after detecting this remarkable depth where Posidonia was still found.

ALSO IN THE WRECK OF THE “ELPHIS”
Another curiosity was detected by experts during research conducted in the waters of the beautiful Sicilian islands: Posidonia is so lush that it is even growing inside the wreck of the ship Elphis, which had sunk near the islet of Formica, between Trapani and Favignana, in 1978.


DIVERS, THE EGADIANS ARE WAITING FOR YOU!

For lovers of diving and marine species.: in the protected area of the Egadi Islands, very rare species of sponges, gorgonians, mollusks and a large amount of valuable fish such as amberjack, groupers and Mediterranean barracuda have also been found.
