Explanations about the natural phenomenon that frightened tourists in Hurghada had to be given to local biologists. On some beaches of the resort, the color of the Red Sea turned bloody, frightening tourists. However, as experts explain, this is not an “alarming symptom” at all, but exactly the opposite.
Dr. red coral reefs. More specifically, their spawning season is the coral reef breeding season, which begins in late April and early May every year.
“Millions of mature pink coral eggs are released into the water, so the water appears dark red over large areas of the surface water in some places, especially on the beaches of Hurghada, rich in coral reefs,” said the biologist. He noted that this change in the color of the sea can only be considered a “good signal” – if the reefs are actively multiplying, so much so that the water changes color – there is reason to hope for further growth of coral reefs, which in turn ensures that the reefs in the Red Sea will not destroyed and the next generations of tourists will be able to admire them.
The expert also stressed that coral reefs are extremely important for the biology of the Red Sea, as they are one of the most important, rare and endangered marine organisms that are forbidden to be touched, especially destroy. And besides, he added that some tourists are not only not afraid of the “red” Red Sea, but they specially arrive during the “blooming” season of corals to see this rare phenomenon.
