Ali Ethem Keskin
In the 17th century, the Ottomans and the Venetians were in stiff competition to gain control over the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas. On 9 February 1695, the Ottoman and Venetian fleets fought a decisive battle off the island of Oinousses, between Çeşme and Chios.
The battle ended in victory for the Ottomans and the destruction of a large part of the Venetian navy. Years later, the sunken vessels were identified by one of Turkey’s most important underwater documentary filmmakers, Savaş Karakaş, and his team, using some incredible technology.
