Sandwiched between Europe and Africa, the Mediterranean has for centuries been one of the most trafficked bodies of water in the world. Yet somehow merpeople (including the Greek Sirens), the hippocampus and the sea serpent have managed to live in the sea undetected. The Mediterranean Sea is also a natural habitat of gillyweed, which we know because when Barty Crouch, Jr. wanted Harry to know about the plant, he gave Neville a book that included it: Magical Water-Plants of the Mediterranean (GF14, GF35).
