As you may imagine, this island has always possessed a high percentage of fishermen, it’s part of the natural heritage and traditions, families have handed down through the generations – but also a high percentage of deep-sea divers, exploring, discovering, venturing and transmitting.
Corsica, so much part of the Mediterranean treasury, with its three million tourists every year, and 700,000 visitors to the nature reserve of Scandola alone – will need to keep an alert eye on its maritime affairs too, for the increasing numbers of boats is not to be neglected within the surroundings of this small island.
