I have been appointed the dive representative on the National Steering Committee for Redmap Australia. Their first planning workshop is being held in Tasmania November 22 and 23rd. Fishers and divers can report sightings of species that are unusual or ‘out of range’ in a given area to Redmap. The project is being developed Australia-wide. www.redmap.org.au Could any one please let us know if they have noticed any new or unusual species?
