Beautiful! Nice buoyancy control in that shallow water. I noticed a lack of fish life. Is that something unique to that particular Turkish river? Certainly looks to be plenty of aquatic vegetation that would provide great fish habitat!

 

Makes me want to be there. Looking outside and we have 15cm of snow sitting on the deck... :-(

Hello

Thanks for the comment

Actually we have seen some fish ...Some really big grey mullets and sea bass   but they were so timid ...We found a spear of a harpoon down there so I think even its forbidden people are hunting them. . And also we were quite close to see and some people have noticed a Mediterranean monk seal (monachus monachus) in the river earlier... So may be because of that the fish were just disappearing when they saw us....
