Haliotis tuberculata or the green ormer is a maritime snail species which is mainly

found in the Mediterranean but also in the Eastern Atlantic. This sea dweller is

often mistaken for a mussel because of its shape as well as its ability to create

pearls just like a mussel does.

The muscular foot with which the animal clings onto the ground is considered a

delicacy in many countries. For this reason the marine snail is an endangered species

and regionally protected in various ways.
