Tooradin area in Western Port Bay Field Trip – Saturday 8th March 2014

By | March 6, 2014

Hi all,

ANGFA Victoria reminds everyone that there is a field trip this Saturday 8th March to the Tooradin area in Western Port Bay.

For those who have not explored the area it is a truly amazing area with many different fish and crab species present including gobies, smelt, galaxias, bream to name but a few.

For those who have not been to the area you will be surprised by the range of habitats ranging from lower freshwater systems, brackish estuaries and full marine environments.

Western Port Bay has some of the most southern mangroves colonies in the country. These trees are often referred to as the oceans nurseries with many fish species finding shelter and habitat around the root systems.

Field trips are run for all the family to come along and have a great day. We hope to see you there on Saturday.
