Australian giant cuttlefish at Shelly Beach HD
Sepia Apama, known as Cuttlefish is one of the strangest looking animal underwater. Looking like a visitor from a different planet, this animal did not mind me at all.
~ No take Aquatic Reserve ~
This creature and 160 more species are living in Cabbage Tree Reserve.
This is a 'no take' Aquatic Reserve, which means you are not permitted to fish by any method, harm marine animals or plants, or collect marine organisms whether dead or alive (including empty shells as they provide homes for living organisms). Please remember, you must not harm any organisms, including sea urchins, to feed the fish.
Please report illegal or suspect fishing activities to your nearest Fisheries Office or use the Fishers Watch Phoneline on 1800 043 536.
Shelly Beach is a part of the Cabbage Tree Reserve. The beautiful underwater world that's there can be enjoyed only because it is a protected area. Please help keeping it this way as there aren't many places like that.
Would like to get involved? Why not becoming a friend of the Cabbage Tree Reserve? OR a volunteer ?
