Ribbon Reef No.5 Survey

Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea Expedition: Survey 17
Ribbon Reef No.5 is zoned Blue by GBRMPA which means there is more fishing allowed in this area than on some of the other Ribbon Reefs which are more strictly protected. There is one particularly popular dive on the north eastern side of this reef called the Clam Garden, named as you might guess, after some huge resident clams - About 2.5 metres wide.

Despite the lighter level of protection there are still plenty of fish in the area, if you are lucky you might even see a turtle like we did.
