The old #RapidBay jetty on the #FleurieuPeninsula acts as a valuable nursery area for many species of fish.⁣

This juvenile moonlighter is enjoying the food and protection provided by the structure and growth on the collapsed plyons, many of which are over 70 years old.⁣

The site is also popular for divers, with many sections of jetty structure, especially the “T section” supporting dense schools of fish.

The #leafyseadragon is also regularly spotted here at various life stages from juveniles to breeding adults. ⁣
