Kent Group Marine Reserve

Highlights

The Kent Group is unusually rich in fish species having the highest diversity in Tasmania. The main reason appears to be the fact that the area is the meeting point of a range of influences including the warm Eastern Australian current coming from New South Wales and the westerly influence of Bass Strait. The Kent Group includes the southern most strongholds of several fish species including the violet roughy, mosaic leatherjacket and Wilson’s weedfish, and the southern limit of distribution of Maori wrasse, one spot puller and Bank’s shovelnose.
