COMMENTS & OBSERVATIONS

Another day of recording for the Sea Slug Census of the Sunshine Coast. Not as many species as the previous day being one less diver on this trip. The water still had the green tinge. Again, there were species we expected to see but they eluded our searching. There were other finds of note however, including Babakina indopacifica and Ceratosoma trilobatum at TJ’s Boulders and Aegires gardineri at Nudi Retreat. The species count at Nudi Retreat was unexpectedly low.

Total Species Sighted: 25
