Pier Dive with lots of Macro life all year round. Great to dive during day or night alike!

A juvenile Port Jackson Shark, resting before another session of terrifying the citizens of Blairgowrie, with it's poisonous dorsal spines. ;-)

It is not really Tasman Sea. It is Port Philip Bay, Melbourne Australia... and here is the surprise... 85% of species in Port Philip Bay are unique to the area. Melbourne is an understated, if cool, diving location.

As this Tasselled Anglerfish swims slowly by, it shows off all its fins and spines, maybe as a display to neighbouring anglerfish.

by Brian Mayes
When chased this Tasselled Anglerfish adopts a streamlined attitude with dorsal spines down, yet strangely with prominent lure (illicium).

Stargazer - slightly ugly fish -

Porcupine fish with a shrimp on its nose. Never seen this before, it's probably just coincidental. But, it may be cleaning its left eye socket as it appears hollow. Once the shrimp swam away the socket and eye looked normal.

Very small (10mm) Phyllodesmium serratum, grazing on a sea-squirt "inlet". It looked like a fungus at first sight but when I looked closer it appeared a tiny nudibranch.
