11th March 2019 – Black Cod Galore
Monday diving turned out to be quite enjoyable although our visibility has dropped a bit. Around 10-15 mtrs at the Northern end and 15 Mtrs along the western side, South Solitary Island was very pleasant, both under and above. Today was the annual Black Cod survey, and had a total count of 20, which is one of the highest counts so far. Most of the protected species today, were along the northern side from Cleaner Station South Boulder, along with myriads of other fish. This included big Eagle Rays slowing up to get cleaned by the resident cleaner wrasse. Picture is of a big Bull Ray that is always around Cleaner Station gutter when we are there.
