The marine life around the islands, especially the more remote coral islands, can be spectacular. More than 1000 species of fish have been recorded. Since the use of spearguns and dynamite for fishing was banned through efforts of local conservationists in the 1960s, the wildlife is unafraid of snorkelers and divers. Coral bleaching in 1998 has unfortunately damaged most reefs. The reefs comprise of a vast selection of soft corals and hard corals alike. There is great diving and snorkeling opportunity. The taking of marine turtles was completely stopped in 1994, turtle populations are now recovering on several islands, most notably Cousin Island, Silhouette Island and Aldabra. The use of gill nets for shark fishing as well as the practice of shark finning are now banned.

REMIRE island - E' l'isola riservata del Presidente delle Seychelles. Ci sono stato nel 1998 con la mia imbarcazione, ancorandomi a nord (200 mt dall'isola dove ci sono banchi di sabbia a - 5/6 mt.) Ho fatto belle immersioni sull'im-menso reef a nor/est. Rifornito la cambusa (aragoste, trovate nel reef a ovest (-2/3 mt, a 100 mt dall'isola)

Errores, opiniones.
