It would really be mind-blowing for the tourists and a great achievement for ocean scientists. According to Terry Kirby, the discovery in a spectacular Indonesian seascape off the coast of Papua has been hailed as greater even than the Barrier Reef!
Hailing as a “species factory”, dozens of exotic new fish and corals has been discovered in this amazing — possibly the richest — marine environment in the world! A total of more than 1,200 species of fish and almost 600 species of coral were recorded here, which is three-quarters of the world’s total!
