Police spokesman Leonardo Ricci said that choppy seas are preventing divers from reaching the wreck, now resting on the seabed. More than 200 people are still missing.
The 20-metre boat packed with migrants sank on Thursday when the ship capsized after they started a fire to attract attention.
The migrants had spent two days at sea travelling from Libya. Just 155 people survived and so far, 111 bodies have been recovered.
Earlier, a fishing boat flotilla threw a single bouquet of yellow flowers into the sea at the site.
