““If you want to hear the distant voice of the ocean put your ear to the lips of a seashell.” - Curtis Tyrone Jones
Seashells are the exoskeletons of mollusks such as snails, clams, oysters and many others. They have a critical role in coastal ecosystems such as providing nesting materials, a home or attachment surface for algae, sea grass, sponges, and a host of other microorganisms. Fish also use seashells to hide from predators while hermit crabs use them as temporary shelters.
ScubaCom has the only specimen seashell permit (EP0002) in South Australia which is closely managed by the SA Fisheries Department.
