Hi there! We are 1ESO students of high school Sunsi Mora in Canet de Mar. Here is our survey of fish captures of Arenys harbor.

Graphic Arenys captures

The most fished

The Sardinian or sardine (Sardina pilchardus) is a fish of around Clupeiformes, the family of clupeidae, bluish, the flanks and belly silvery color bright, inhabiting coastal areas that captures and consumes in large quantities because of its high nutritional value.

The anchovy or anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus) is a family of fish clupeidae, often consumed preserved in water and salt, taking the name anchovy. By extension, the anchovy is the common name given to the anchovies in many parts of Valencia and southern Catalonia.

CONGRATULATIONS and all the best!!!


On behalf of the S'Agulla Team and myself, I would like to congratulate you for all the hard work. WELL DONE!!!

You have done lovely presentations to introduce yourselves and showed us a little about the bit of ocean that you enjoy!

Now we know that the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is not even. Compared to last January-February, average SST it is similar. However the years with largest and smallest SST oscillations are quite different!

Taking the measure of the Secchi depth was not possible for none of you. In any case, remember that plankton is the base of the marine food chain!

You have all surveyed beaches of similar granulometry, so you didn't find any differences in the beach profiles; but, I can tell you that with thicker sand, the slope of the beach front is steeper!

It has been fantastic to know your ‘marine menu’. All these marine species are very tasty to me!

Pitty that at the end most of you didn't manage to keep to deadlines. Nevertheless, don't miss the opportunity to compare your results with the rest of participating schools. There's a fantastic variety of fish that we can eat!

I've also had a lot of fun discovering what the inland looks like through your audioguides. Those who haven't finished yet you can still post them within this month!

Thank you for all your collaboration and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

All the best!
