Documenting our fish diversity in False Bay means exciting encounters with invertebrates too ... These young West Coast rock lobsters found our bait canisters irresistible. Either that, or they are born movie stars!

The University of Cape Town and SAEON, funded by the Save our Seas Foundation, are working to develop cost-effective underwater monitoring for South Africa's coastline.

Visit for more information, and search "False Bay BRUVs" to follow the project's blog. More information, photographs and videos to be found there.
