Enquiries are continuing to establish the identity of a man whose body was discovered floating in Greville Harbour, off D'Urville Island yesterday afternoon.
The body was found by a couple who were moored on their yacht in the harbour. A second yacht was moored about 100 metres from them and police believe the deceased man may have come from that vessel.
The couple managed to pull the body from the water into a dinghy and secured it until police arrived.
Police have recovered the body and a post mortem examination will be conducted later today.
The circumstances around the death do not appear suspicious.
