Discover Underwater and coastal wildlife Mauritania

Mauritanian ocean water conceals a great quantity of fish and mammals of all kinds. Tuna fish, barracudas, sea bass, octopus, lobsters and mackerels all live together to indulge the fishermen. There are also dolphins, sharks, mullets, sea breams, skates and groupers. Such diversity is explained by the presence of two sea streams, one warm, one cold, favouring the proliferation of the species. On the coast, there is a great variety of bird species and the Banc d'Arguin National Park hosts numerous bird colonies and provides the ideal conditions for their reproduction. Cormorants, pelicans, flamingoes and herons have made it their habitat.
