Mediterranean
An extension of the Atlantic Ocean between Europe and Africa (Charton & Tietjen, 1989) often used to describe a biogeographic region but which, according to Ekman (1953), is not a distinct faunal unit but enters into a greater one which includes the neighbouring parts of the Atlantic.
