Defying the hard conditions of the inter-tide area, characterized by the constant movement of the waves, there is a surprisingly large number of organisms.

The inter-tide area is characterized as the area under the influence of the tides, although in the Mediterranean they are not very large (20 cm at most). At certain times and for reasons of the movement of the sea (generally waves), these areas are momentarily left without water. The invertebrates that live here have adapted to this situation and are capable of keeping water in their bodies to survive until the sea returns. Furthermore, the fish are obliged to move periodically with the wave movement and the areas affected have a wealth of species where the stability of the water allows them.
