These shallow waters vary from mud and sandbars to seagrass flats to rocky bottom. These habitats are very important nursery areas for hundreds of species of fish and invertebrates.

        Heron Island is also popular among birds, such as the black noddy terns, egrets and wedgetailed shearwaters, which nest and breed on Heron Island roughly the same time as turtle nesting season. This season, there were an estimate of green turtles and 14 loggerhead turtles nesting on Heron Island.   The child was wading in shallow water off a beach at the Heron Island tourist resort when a black tipped reef shark attacked him on Tuesday afternoon.

        Demospongiae. Demospongiae is the largest and most diverse class of the Porifera. It unites sponges with siliceous spicules (Fig. 2G) (either monaxonic or tetraxonic, never triaxonic) and/or with a skeleton of organic fibers or fibrillar in Hexactinellida (see below) siliceous spicules are divided into megascleres, which strengthen the framework of the Cited by: Shallow-water Ap/ysina Nardo (Aplysinidae, Verongida, Demospongiae) from the Sao Sebastiao Channel and its environs (Tropical southwestern Atlantic), with the description of a new species and a literature review of other brazilian records of the genus Ulisses dos Santos Pinheiro 1,2 Eduardo Hajdu 1,3 ABSTRACT.
