Saddled Seabream (Oblada melanura) is a salted water fish belonging to the Sparidae family. It is the only species of the genus Oblada, and in the Mediterranean it is virtually omnipresent. It can live in free water, in the cave and is widespread on the wrecks, we can find it in a few inches of depths up to 40-50 meters. He lives in flocks of numerous specimens, but adult specimens can be lonely. It has the name of a black spot similar to a small eye that stands out on the caudal peduncle, despite its small size being a fierce predator feeding on fish, molluscs, sea worms, crustaceans and seaweed. In the video we see we met the cave, in free water and sheltered by a rocky wall.
