Notes

The display is part of the Underwater Sydney Project - a new initiative to promote the marine life of Sydney.

The Underwater Sydney team will be researching the entire coast of Sydney including the Harbour with the aim of teaching locals about the amazing marine life that lives on their doorstep.

As part of this research process they hope to find and photograph a living specimen of the Sydney Scorpionfish at Clifton Gardens, Mosman, where the only two specimens known were caught.
