The Cod Hole Survey
Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea Expedition: Survey 15
The Cod Hole is named after its resident population of very large Potato Cods.
Interestingly the Cod Hole was one of the first sites protected on the Great Barrier Reef thanks primarily to the efforts of Ron and Valerie Taylor, who in the early 1980's witnessed the huge cod population decimated by overfishing.
This corner of reef attracts a huge variety of marine life aside from Potato Cods, including huge Coral Trout, all varieties of shark, Minke Whales, dolphins and thousands of coral reef fish. This is truly a world class dive site.
