Port Jackson Shark

This is another shot from Three Mile Reef off the coast of Perth. The Port Jackson Shark is very common here and is fairly harmless - it has some spines which are said to be venomous. They are usually found, like this one, quietly sitting on the bottom and they grow to around 4 -5 feet in length.


  1. They don't sound too scary, only growing to five feet, but the venomous spines could be a problem. Nice shot.

  2. hey i am coming to perth in like 6 weeks and i would like to see one of them. the port jackson sharks. maybe we can meet and go together for a dive and u can show me how amazing diving in perth is. :) if u keen text me on fb stefanie mutze.
