Miquelon Shipwreck

The Miquelon is a cargo ship from the early twentieth century. It belonged to a fishing company called “La Morue Française et Secherie de Fecamps” in 1913. In 1917, on a trip to Algiers, the ship collided with a steamship. It sank immediately.

Today lying 52 meters below surface on a sand bank, the Miquelon Shipwreck has become a sanctuary for damselfish, cardinalfishes, and forkbeards, which nest in the sheet metal.  A great number of sponges and coral have also claimed the spot as home.
