September Competition Category – temperate – clarification

Some members wanted some clarity around what this means. I think originally the intent was to focus on more local rather than tropical subjects. Some discussion with the committee decided the following would apply for this category.

Given the broad definition below we may see some lower GBR tropical within this definition.

The Temperate East Marine Region covers Australian waters from the southern boundary of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and Coral Sea marine park, to Bermagui in southern New South Wales.

I am mindful of the intent and as we are not playing for cattle stations it will be great to see some beautiful images of out temperate waters and marine life.

Safe diving, Ian
