Scientists discover more biodiverse deepwater reef than the Great Barrier Reef

Scientists used a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) with a camera to explore the reef in Wilsons Promontory. Because the newly discovered reef is in deeper waters than the Great Barrier Reef , the size and variety of organisms differ somewhat. At Wilsons Promontory, the ROV captured footage showing coral fans and dunes around 30 meters (98 feet) high, making for an impressive discovery. Several rare species of fish, including the Australian barracuda and Longsnout Boarfish, were caught on film as well, bolstering the evidence that the reef is an incredible habitat for all sorts of sea life.
