    Australians are seeing more unusual fish in their local seas. Redmap asks fishers, divers and the public to log these uncommon sightings and photos on the Redmap App or at redmap.org.au. This community data helps marine scientists track species that may be shifting into new areas in response to changes in their local seas, such as ocean warming. Already Redmap’s citizen scientists have logged hundreds of unusual sightings including fish, rays, sharks, octopus, turtles and even sea slugs!

    This competition was funded by an Australian Government Inspiring Australia grant.  Redmap Australia is hosted by the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) at the University of Tasmania (UTas).
