The Marine Reserve Area “Regno di Nettuno”, has been created to protect marine environments and several species dwelling here; the unquestionable queen is the Posidonia Oceanica. Returning to the sea from the terrestrial environment, this plant is endemic of Mediterranean sea and plays a very important role of stabilizing the seabed and containing the intensity of waves and tides thanks to a close plot of roots, rhizomes and leaves. Posidonia forms wide prairies which are not only an oxygen resource for the life on Earth, but also food source for several herbivorous fishes.
An area with an intense volcanic activity given by the vents of CO₂ makes the water barely suitable for any life-forms.
