Wave Break Island Eastern Seagrass Bed

Wave Break Island Eastern Seagrass Bed

This seagrass bed on the eastern side of Wave Break Island does not cover a large area but is an excellent example of a seagrass habitat.  The variety of marine life supported here is astounding, what initially may appear as a rather lifeless seagrass cover when snorkelling over the top is on closer inspection a habitat of rich biodiversity.

The bed depth range is approximately 5 metres in the north and rises gradually to 3 metres in the south and mainly consists of Dugong Grass - Halophila ovalis and Spiny Dugong Grass - Halophila spinulosa with some Zostera capricornia.

This is one of QLD's few estuarine seagrass beds that has relatively good visibility and a lack of bighties (stingers, crocs and sharks).

There are more extensive seagrass beds north of Wave Break Island but conditions generally aren't suitable for diving in those areas, this seagrass bed then becomes a good indicator of some of the life that other seagrass beds support.

Diving here you gain an appreciation of the important roll played by seagrass beds as a nursery and a habitat for a variety of marine life.

There are many cryptic critters here that require patience and persistence to observe such as the Seagrass Wrasse - Novaculoides macrolepidotus which is the first recorded sighting of this species in the Moreton Bay Marine Park area.

In May 2012 dugong feeding tracks were recorded in the Dugong Grass - Halophila ovalis section of the seagrass bed."
