Marine Life – Vertibrates

Discover the vertibrates in Gran Canaria

The vertibrates, also refered to as bony fish, form a cornerstone in the oceans. The waters around Gran Canaria have a large variaty of species. You are surprised by the large groups of grunts swimming around. Baracuda’s are chasing sardines and the trumpetfish seems sleeping head-down. While diving around the south of Gran Canaria, we captured many pictures. As of now we want to share them with you all. Please discover a selection of vertibrates discovered during our dives.



RedPROMAR  is a Marine Life Observers Network is formed by people and entities committed to the conservation and knowledge of marine life in the Macaronesian Region, and who are also interested in scientific disclosure and marine citizen science. The organisation has a platform for recording information about biodiversity that facilitates the monitoring and surveillance of marine life. Thanks to its observers and partner entities, it operates as an early warning system that provides updated information on the health of the sea and changes occurring in ecosystems. The organisation is also a direct communication channel between citizens, public authorities and the scientific community, as well as a means to allow citizens to learn about the sea, promoting their respect and care.

Scuba Sur participates in sigthing reports for the different vertibrates seen during the dives. Nevertheless, on the RedPROMAR website you can find the full list of the vertibrates in Gran Canaris. The RedPROMAR site is available is Spanish and English.
