Seeds For Snapper SCUBA/Free Diver

Ozfish Unlimited
Logo for Ozfish Unlimited

Seagrass meadows are an important nursery ground for countless fish and species of marine life, including pink snapper, King George whiting, herring, Western rock lobster, prawns, squid, and blue swimmer crabs.

With more than 85% of seagrass meadows having been lost from Cockburn Sound in the last century, OzFish’s Seeds for Snapper project aims to restore these meadows in hopes to create a healthy habitat to support a growing number of native fish.

Seeds for Snapper is driven by the hundreds of volunteers who help make this project be the largest of its kind in Australia.

As a SCUBA/Free diver, you will be helping us collect the fruit from the seagrass plants. You will be working with a partner to run your hands through the seagrass to free the fruits that are ready to be collected. The released fruits will then be collected in fruit-catching nets as they float to the surface.

You can not apply for this role as it is no longer available.
