Scuba Diver Australasia - Extraordinary Dives

Scuba Diver Australasia gave a full page spread to one of my photos in their November 2009 issue. Scuba Diver Australasia is a scuba magazine dedicated to the underwater world in the Asia Pacific. The official publication of the PADI Diving Society in the Asia Pacific, Scuba Diver Australasia was first published in 1979 under the name Scuba Diver. In 2000, it was renamed Scuba Diver Australasia. As of April 2009, the magazine has a readership of 90,000 across 48 countries.

With a cirri crown on its head resembling that of an North American Indian Chief’s Warbonnet, the aptly named Decorated Warbonnet (Chirolophis decoratus) ranks as being one of British Columbia’s signature fish species. Found at depths between 15 to 90 metres, this seemingly elusive fish hides in sponge burrows or crevices by day and tends to be seen out in the open during night dives.
