Tonna galea (Μπουχώνα)

Tonna galea


A Tonna Galea shell, spotted dead, in the small fishing boat harbour of Agria Bay, Volos, Greece. My guess is that it was accidently fished, eventually it was released, but it did not survive. That species of marine snail is one of the largest in the Greek seas, and is protected. It lives in the sandy deeps, and is a common species in Pagasitikos gulf. Μία μπουχώνα (Tonna galea), στο μικρό λιμανάκι των αλιευτικών, στην Αγριά Βόλου. Το είδος είναι προστατευόμενο και αποτελεί ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα θαλασσινά σαλιγκάρια των Ελληνικών θαλασσών. Ζει στους αμμουδερούς βυθούς, και είναι κοινό είδος του Παγασητικού κόλπου.
