Thanks to everyone who contributed to the 4th Coffs Coast Sea Slug Census. A total of 491 observations of a total 130 species makes this by far the most successful to date. Sixteen people submitted observations, some of whom were assisted by other team members or “spotters”, making an overall total of 30 participants. For the awarding of prizes, most species recorded went to Craig Lewis with 51, the most interesting find, Goniobranchus kunei, was spotted by Nathan Fripp, and the prize awarded by independent judges for best photograph went to Ian Shaw.
A big thank you also to our sponsors for this year. Jetty Dive from Coffs Harbour and DiveQuest from Mullaway donated double dive vouchers, and Jetty Dive donated an Enth Degree clothing voucher for the best photo. Camera House from Coffs Harbour donated a print voucher also for the best photo.
