    Shark Bay has 400,000 hectares of seagrass banks making them the largest in the world. However, there is not just one species of seagrass in the bay but 12 helping to sustain a large population of Dugong, Sharks, Turtles and Dolphins amongst the large variety of fish.

    The waters in Shark Bay are very shallow and when added to our hot dry climate it creates a very salty water environment. The seabanks play their part in all this by restricting the tidal flow and preventing the open ocean from diluting the super saline water
