33 species sighted at Fish Cage upriver, La Balsa Park, Mooloolah River, Mooloolaba, Qld. 28-06-2020.

A single shore entry dive by Gary, Fran, Never, Tracey and Harvey of 211 minutes. Maximum depth 5.8 m, 19 C water temperature up to 8 m viz.

Melbourne weather has been beset upon the Nudibranch Dive Team. Cold and rain and wind! So be it it's Tracey and Harveys last holiday dive...Tracey said it was EPIC! 2 new species makes for an exciting dive in the river where the treasures continually are to be found. Of great interest is the recording of Plocamopherus pecoso and Pruvotfolia sp. 1. Another live Retusa sp. 1 was found digging through the sand...Bob! Yes I agree this outing was EPIC...
