Abstract: This report is in part fulfillment of the task given to the undersigned consultant that a comprehensive compendium of information of the site, its habitats and species should be drawn up in the form of a preliminary biotope and species list to enable recognition of classified habitats.This report is based solely on existing published information. During the compilation of this report, the undersigned noted the general paucity of exiting information on the marine species and biotopes recorded from the Filfla environs. This is partly confirmed by Borg et al. (1997) who state that ‘In spite of its natural historic interest and its status as a protected area, no studies on the marine life have been made, possibly because access is difficult and fieldwork on the shore and underwater is only possible in very clam weather conditions, which are not frequent around Filfla’.
