Latest Vision Shows Thriving Shellfish Reef

The Nature Conservancy, in conjunction with the Albert Park Yachting & Angling Club (APYAC) and Victorian Fisheries Authority have been working hard to restore the lost shellfish reefs in Port Phillip Bay.

The Shellfish Reef Restoration project partners have been working towards a long-term vision of restoring Port Phillip Bay’s lost shellfish reefs to enhance the Bay’s water quality, fisheries and biodiversity.

There have been a number of dives on site over recent months and these have demonstrated just how successful the project continues to be. Every time the site is visited, it is found to be teeming with fish. The latest dive on Tuesday found over one-thousand schooling pinkie snapper, hulafish and thriving oysters!
