About this book

Language: French

Did you know that only a few kilometers off the coast of the Mediterranean there lives an exceptional pelagic fauna? Whales and sperm whales, dolphins, sea turtles, seabirds, sunfish and skin-blue sharks coexist on the high seas, sometimes crossing the wake of some pleasure or merchant ship. They are part of the pelagic nomads, living beings on the high seas near the surface. Throughout the pages of this great photographic book you will discover the best pictures of Frédéric Larrey and Thomas Roger. Since 2008, these naturalists snorkel in waters in pursuit of encounters with these animals and have observed little known and rarely seen scenes. Jean-Michel Bompar, author of the texts of the book, gives his great naturalistic experience in the Mediterranean through the pages of this book. Pelagos: Voyage Naturaliste au Large de la Méditerranée gives accessible information on this mysterious ecosystem of the open sea and on the biology of its inhabitants.

Summary in French:
Saviez-vous qu’à quelques kilomètres à peine au large des côtes de la Méditerranée vit une faune pélagique exceptionnelle ? Baleines et cachalots, dauphins, tortues marines, oiseaux marins, poissons-lunes et requins peau-bleue se côtoient en haute mer, croisant parfois le sillage de quelques navires de plaisance ou marchands. Ils font partie du « pelagos », ces êtres nomades vivant en haute mer proche de la surface. Au fil des pages de ce grand livre photographique, vous découvrirez les plus belles images de Frédéric LARREY et Thomas ROGER. Depuis 2008, ces naturalistes plongent en apnée dans les eaux du large en quêtes de rencontres avec ces animaux peu connus et de scènes rarement observées. Jean-Michel BOMPAR, auteur des textes de l'ouvrage, nous livre au fil des pages sa grande expérience naturaliste en Méditerranée. Il donne des informations accessibles à tous sur cet écosystème mystérieux qu'est le grand large et sur la biologie de ses habitants.
