Marine Animals

It is said that we know more about our own solar system than we know about our oceans, and every year hundreds of unknown creatures are discovered, ranging from tiny crustaceans to monster fish.

The Namibian coastal waters are some of the richest fishing grounds in the world, due mainly to the cold Benguella Current, which flows northwards from the Antarctic. It is exceptionally high in quantities of plankton, which accounts for the abundance of anchovies, pilchards, mackerels and other white fish

Namibia’s coast is also known for its different dolphin species, Cape fur seal colonies, sharks and whales, as well as squid, cuttlefish, stingrays, sea turtles and octopus, as well as small marine life, like sea anemones etc.
