WHAT IS ELASMODIVER?

Not just a huge collection of Shark Pictures: Elasmodiver.com contains images of sharks, skates, rays, and a few chimaera's from around the world. Elasmodiver began as a simple web based shark field guide to help divers find the best places to encounter the different species of sharks and rays that live in shallow water but it has slowly evolved into a much larger project containing information on all aspects of shark diving and shark photography.

There are now more than 10,000 shark pictures  and sections on shark evolution, biology, and conservation. There is a large library of reviewed shark books, a constantly updated shark taxonomy page, a monster list of shark links, and deeper in the site there are numerous articles and stories about shark encounters. Elasmodiver is now so difficult to check for updates, that new information and pictures are listed on an Elasmodiver Updates Page that can be accessed here:

SHARK DIVING HOTSPOTS - FISH ROCK, NSW, AUSTRALIA

 

 

Encounter: Enormous banded wobbegongs, dwarf ornate wobbegongs, spotted wobbegongs and possibly tasseled wobbegongs. Also lots of grey nurse sharks (sandtigers), shark rays, bull rays, the occasional blind shark and various other seasonal visiting elasmobranchs.

All of these animals are just hanging out at Fish Rock, a small guano covered islet not far from Southwest Rocks in New South Wales. Wobbegongs lounge around on the ledges and Grey nurse sharks hover in the gullies between them. There is also a fissure that runs right through the islet and forms a long swim-through cavern that hosts yet more wobbegongs and the occasional grey nurse. The cave is also home to a couple of gigantic bull rays.

Operators: Jon Cragg is the owner/operator of Fish Rock Dive Centre. He has done thousands of dives on the rock and has a fast dive boat that can get you there from Southwest Rocks in about 20 minutes. John's dive shop is located on the main road into SW Rocks and is attached to a hotel which is happy to cater to divers.

Southwest Rocks Dive Centre is another recommended operator.
