Attacked In the Bay 1978 – 2017

DRI's Director Jeff Weir in news clipping from 1978.

Similar to feature about a wading boy in the AGE of 7 August 2017.  

The injury would have been caused by amphipods which are tiny crustaceans that take a similar role in the sea as slaters do in the garden by scavenging whatever they can find and helping to decompose the dead and broken animals and plants. So they are an incredibly important part of the system.

In the deep ocean these little guys can grow bigger than a rat!  But in our bay they are about 1 cm.

They come out at night and will swamp in the light of a torch.

In Jeff's case they got under his wetsuit hood and pecked away at his forehead. They make little scrapings that look a lot like a graze injury when you fall over on asphalt.

It's not life threatening but will give you a fright.

Swimmers or people moving around won't be affected.
