Native Sea Wildlife at Seal Rocks

13/08/2015

  • Conjevoi is a sea squirt, found around the edge of the low tide mark.
  • It often forms a mat over rocks.
  • During high tide, the Cunjevoi feed on plankton, as water is pumped in and out.
  • As the tide lowers, the Cunjevoi holds water so it doesn’t dry out. Like all sea squirts, if squeezed or trodden on, it will squirt out a jet of water.
  • It was once a food source for the Aboriginal people, who would scoop out the soft insides.
  • It is also great bait!
