Great Victorian Fish Count

Three fishing vessels [mere dots in this grey photo] near Port Melbourne Yacht Club caught my eye this morning - the fishing must have been good today. Between 3 and 18 December each year, Reefwatch conduct the Great Victorian Fish Count. 85% of the species found in Victoria's southern waters are found nowhere else in the world. The benefits of the count include species lists, suites of species, abundance of species and their distribution and range. You can see Victoria's extraordinary fish here on the Victorian National Parks Association website. There is probably noone who knows more about the fish in Port Phillip Bay than Dugga Beezley.
