The last diving destination on our SA safari was Edithburgh Jetty on the Yorke Peninsula. We didn't see any Leafies here, but so much other stuff we weren't disappointed. Lots of schooling fish flowing through the multi coloured pylons, rays, blue swimmer crabs, nudis, bobtail squid, octopus, and a few new species for us. There were lots of dusky morwong, but half a dozen suffered with scoliosis, or spinal curvature. This is genetic, so I guess they were all related. Unfortunately we came across an affected fish lying on the bottom with his gut ripped out. Can only think it was a spear wound, but the poor fish was in great distress so I euthanised it. :(

Thanks Greg,

Edithburgh certainly is a rich and diverse dive location, and every dive produced something different. Not too crowded either :)
