Every year between the months of May and August, thousands of Giant Australian Cuttlefish (Sepia apama) descend on the rocky coastline between Fitzgerald Bay and False Bay near Whyalla. These amazing ‘chameleons of the sea’ are one of the largest species of cuttlefish found in the world and can reach up to 60cm in length and can weigh up to 5kg. This congregation of cuttlefish provides a brilliant opportunity for SCUBA diving among these magnificent creatures throughout each phase of their lifecycle.
The migration by these majestic creatures to these waters is for the sole purpose of mating. During these months, the female attaches her eggs to the underside of the rocky ledges around the area. The male then fertilises these eggs, which hatch a couple of months later. The males can only reproduce once and the females die not long after.
