The mix of waters that sweep upwards from the Antarctic, coupled with the roaring forties that sweep westerly and through the Cape Horn bottleneck, brings with it a mass of cool oceanic water. This nutrient rich ocean has sustained the Falklands' economy for the last 20 years.
These same cold nutrient rich waters also bathe the shallow coastal region which is a haven for many species of invertebrates from colourful nudibranchs to starfish, and from shellfish to anemones. This title also covers the Maritime history with details of the wrecks all around these beautiful remote islands.
