Diving Discoveries in Fujairah Waters

Have a look at this photograph and see why Fujairah is one of the most popular and significant regions for diving in the world.

This may be a fryeria rueppelii or a phyllidia varicosa but to the laity it might be better known as a sea slug.

These 15 mm beings were photographed on 13 February 2008 by Yahia Mokhtar while diving around Dibba Rock, Fujairah, Gulf of Oman, Indian Ocean.

The information and photograph is posted on the Sea Slug Forum which is part of the Australian Museum Online.

Check this site to see and learn more about life under the sea off Fujairah. There are some amazing photos of sea slugs from the Gulf of Oman, the Red Sea, Egypt and Western Australia.
